Patent Box Update
With only a few days to go before the G20 meeting in Brisbane, senior German officials have commented on an agreement between Germany and Britain concerning the patent box tax break scheme.
Patent Box allows companies to pay a reduced rate of corporation tax on profits generated directly from patents. According to recent reports, Britain is “willing to wind down its patent box rebates….. only granting tax breaks if they are tied to research and innovation at home”. This is a practice upheld by other OECD countries.
The compromise is aimed at preventing companies from artificially moving their profits to countries with patent boxes. Restricting the patent box to R&D carried out in Britain is far tighter than the original rules. Companies would have to move their R&D operations to Britain to take advantage of the patent box rather than just their tax domicile.
It is expected that patent box and other tax break schemes will be on the agenda for the G20 meeting at the end of the week with the aim of getting a broader agreement in January.
