Contract Management Training | Intellectual Property Training in San Francisco FAQs

Intellectual property (IP) encompasses creations such as trademarks (e.g., "McDonald's"), designs (e.g., Apple products), and processes (e.g., DNA copying). It is significant as it grants legal rights, divided into registered and unregistered types depending on whether formal registration is required for protection.
Intellectual property rights encompass a set of legal entitlements associated with intellectual property. These rights safeguard the created property by granting exclusive usage rights and the freedom to determine its utilisation. The exclusivity provided by these rights allows for various opportunities, such as leveraging the intellectual property within business operations for a competitive advantage or licensing it for recurring financial gains.
Capital allowance refers to the deduction of the value of intellectual property from a business's total profits before tax. The cost of intellectual property can be fully deducted from taxable profits, subject to an annual investment allowance of £200,000. Alternatively, a written-down allowance allows for deducting a percentage of the intellectual property's value annually. Seeking advice from a tax attorney is advisable to optimise tax advantages.
