Scotland Votes to Stay in United Kingdom...
With the historic vote in Scotland now counted, and with a clear majority of the Scottish electorate voting for Scotland to stay in the United Kingdom, any uncertainty regarding Intellectual Property in Scotland has been put to bed. Now is the time for Scottish businesses to consider strengthening their Intellectual Proprty rights to cover the United Kingdom and Europe. Companies with patents can take advantage of the United Kingdom Patent Box regulations to pay less corporation tax, whilst R & D tax credits are an incentive to companies to create and develop within the United Kingdom.
UDL have set up a team able to advise in all areas of IP for Scottish businesses, headed by Rob Orr and David Stanners. Please contact Rob at email@example.com or David at firstname.lastname@example.org
