Reduce your Corporation Tax to 10% with MPA
Patent Box is a government scheme that pays businesses to invest in innovation. This could enable you to pay a reduced Corporation Tax rate of 10% on profits — if they come from the sale of products or services containing a qualifying patented innovation. And yet, with 1,025 claims made; only 3% of companies with eligible patents and claiming R&D tax credits are taking advantage of this benefit. We want to change this.
Could I benefit from Patent Box?
If you have a patent you could be eligible to claim through Patent Box. Many patented inventions are often small technical improvements on existing products or processes, which can yield substantial returns. To find out if you could be benefitting, please get in touch and one of our experts will talk you through the process.

Revenue generated from these claims helps us to maintain the profitability of the company – as well as keeping the owner happy, which is essential. This then allows us to continue to invest in R&D and develop new products.
How to claim - our 3 step process
The Patent Box application process can seem daunting. But we’ve made it as simple as possible by breaking it down into three easy-to-follow steps. We’ll work closely with you at every stage to ensure your application has the best chance of success.
Patent / product technical assessment
We’ll work with you to identify and validate your existing IP, along with any current or planned innovation projects.
Next, we’ll assess the benefits of making a Patent Box election, and decide on an appropriate timescale.
We’ll then compile a schedule of products and services that are associated with the qualifying patents and may also qualify — and we’ll document an engineering justification for them.
Lastly, we’ll define the relationship between R&D expenditure, qualifying patents and associated revenues.
We’ll develop a valid income streaming methodology, with advice from HMRC where needed.
Then, together we’ll validate and agree the split between costs and R&D expenditure.
We’ll help you put processes in place to capture the required data.
And then, we’ll apply current legislation to calculate Relevant IP Profit.
Submit your tax return
Together we’ll make the election to join at the appropriate time.
We’ll integrate the Patent Box deduction into your year-end tax breakdown and provide supporting tax analysis, identifying the total tax saving.
You’ll receive your benefit from the HMRC.
Why get a patent?
A patent can cost as little as £5,000 and be granted in 9 months.
Old rules vs new rules
From 1st July 2016, the UK Patent Box regime was changed.
