Dodd & Co Event - Rewarding Innovation Seminar

14th October 2014 (all day)   Download to calendar

12.30pm to 4.30pm at Energus (including lunch)


Dodd & Co have invited the IPO and HMRC to come and speak at an R&D ‘Rewarding Innovation’ seminar to take a practical look at how tax reliefs for innovation can help companies develop and grow.

R&D does not just take place in laboratories. Innovative work and problem-solving happens in many other industries such as, electronics, construction, logistics, engineering, computer software and new media.

Seminar Details:

You might be missing out on valuable tax credits and refunds.  You don’t want that, Dodd & Co don’t want that, and crucially – neither does the tax man (or woman)!

The aim of this seminar is to explain how R&D tax relief works and how it can help your business. Crucially, you’ll hear this information directly from HM Revenue & Customs! Our speakers will also explain how to protect your ideas and how to reduce your tax bill if you use patents in your business.
