Also, my colleague Anne Fairpo will be one of the speakers at the AIPPI's seminar "The Patent Box and ATL credits: The First Six Months - A Success?" which will take place at the offices of Carpmaels & Ransford on the 14 Oct 2013 at 17:30.
The other speaker will be Kevin Phillips, International Tax Partner at Baker Tilly.
According to the AIPPI's website the course is directed at all levels of practitioners with an interest in intellectual property and will provide them with an understanding of the current issues and future potential directions concerning the patent box and ATL credits.
I hope to be there.
