WEBINAR – Fund & Protect Your Innovation 29 November 10am-11am

TBAT Innovation

7th November 2022

Join TBAT and Withers & Rogers to delve into the funding available for innovative projects and how to protect your Intellectual Property.

UK businesses have many UK Government resources available to them to fund and protect their innovative ideas.

Grant Funding provides up to 70% of project costs to help de-risk feasibility studies, proof of concept and industrial research projects, while various tax relief schemes offer either a tax rebate or reduction of Corporation Tax as a reward for innovating in the UK.

In addition, the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) gives businesses the ability to protect their innovation through registering their design or trademark, or via obtaining a patent.

In this webinar, we will cover:

  • Grant Funding Landscape
  • How to apply
  • Tax Relief schemes including R&D Tax, Patent Box, and Capital Allowances
  • What is eligible for protection as a Patent / Design / Trademark / Trade Secret
  • How to decide what protection is right for you and how to apply
  • UK IPO funding available to help with obtaining IP protection
  • Q&A
