IP services for UK accountants & tax advisers.
Lawrie advises on IP rights and secures patents for Patent Box.
We ensure IP and patent box opportunities are identified and maximised.
Do you want to help your clients reduce their corporation tax?
HMRC’s Patent Box scheme for the reduction of Corporation Tax has had a surprisingly low uptake since its introduction in 2013, particularly when it sits beside the well-used R&D Tax Credit scheme.
While UK businesses seem generally aware of Patent Box and its benefits, there seems to be a number of hurdles that are preventing them from accessing it – having the necessary patents in place being one of them.
Lawrie offers patentability audits of businesses and fixed fee Patent Box filing and prosecution packages to make it easy for your clients to obtain the patents they need to access Patent Box.
Your clients are missing out on opportunities to reduce their corporation tax. We can help by identifying patentable innovations for Patent Box.
At Lawrie, we make sure we deliver:
Thorough review of innovations for patentable subject matter.
Peace of mind
IP opportunities & costs clearly outlined.
Easy to understand
Advice carefully provided on time.
