What is Patent Box?

The Patent Box is a Government scheme through HMRC that provides UK companies that hold qualifying IP rights or an exclusive IP license, and receive relevant IP income, the opportunity to benefit from a reduced rate of corporation tax on relevant profits. From 1st April 2017 this rate is 10%, which is applied to company profits from eligible patents or other qualifying intellectual property rights such as:

  • Patents granted by the intellectual property offices UK IPO and EPO;
  • Patents granted by the national intellectual property office of 13 EEA countries;
  • Medicinal & botanical IP rights (e.g. supplementary protection certificates);
  • Exclusive licences for patented inventions developed, exploited and defended by the licensee;
  • Patents acquired from another company, actively managed or developed by the acquiring company.

How are the profits calculated?

Profits will be calculated using revenue streams from global sales of:


Patented products


Products incorporating one or more patented inventions;


Bespoke parts used in the patented product(s);


Compensation/damages resulting from patent infringements


Licence fees, royalties or proceeds from the sale of the patent;
