We are delighted to welcome a new sponsor to the IP100 family – specialist tax consultancy Catax. This new partnership will allow Catax clients to benefit from the IP100 benchmark which is the new standard for measuring and managing IP assets, giving IP100 entrants a better understanding of the value of their IP. Catax will be on hand to assist IP100 entrants in maximising the value of their innovation using Research & Development (R&D) and Patent Box tax credits.
The deal will also see Catax become the recommended tax relief adviser to IP100 entrants. Catax experts will help by maximising the value of their innovation using research and development (R&D) and Patent Box tax credits. In turn, Catax’s own clients will benefit from the IP100 intellectual property (IP) benchmarking service, which introduces ways of increasing a company’s IP credentials and setting them apart from their competitors.
Mark Tighe, founder and CEO of Catax, said:
“IP is arguably a business’s most valuable asset and is often the driving force behind company mergers and acquisitions. It is therefore a great differentiator for companies if they are able to clearly demonstrate the value of their IP ‘assets’ through an IP100 ranking. We’re really excited to be working closely with Metis Partners and the IP100 team to enhance our services and add value for all our clients.”
Stephen Robertson, founder of IP100 and Metis Partners, said:
“This new partnership with Catax is a win-win for all our IP100 entrants and clients who can now benefit from the country’s leading Patent Box tax relief specialists while also ensuring their IP value is clearly highlighted through our IP100 rankings. From small IP-rich SMEs to AIM listed entrants, from £0.5m innovation grant award winners to £10m plus fundraisings, the high quality and success of IP League Table entrants is there for all to see. The market is changing, the expectation gap is closing and IP is increasingly being successfully leveraged by exciting IP-rich companies seeking growth capital.”
