Intellectual property is a vital asset in meeting today’s business challenges – it’s what makes a company and its products stand out in the market. In particular, intellectual property (IP) is important to:
- Management as a source of value and as a key tool to achieve competitive advantages;
- Shareholders and their advisors in assessing the worth of the company;
- Financiers in assessing borrowing capacity.
- IP (and more broadly intangible assets) also have a key role to play in groups’ tax strategies.
Our IP specialist team is made up of tax professionals from across our International Tax and treasury, Tax Value Chain, Transfer Pricing and Innovation, Reliefs & Incentives teams. They are experienced in all tax aspects of the IP lifecycle and work closely together to provide timely and relevant advice whether it be to take an overarching holistic view of how to develop a commercially based IP tax strategy or indeed to focus on more discrete aspects.
