This workshop is for SMEs and business owners in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

  • Is your business innovative?

  •  Patent Box relief – reduce your corporation tax rate to 10%

This workshop is funded via the European Regional Development Fund, therefore we are required to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise.

There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either prior to the event or on the day and these will be sent to you once you have registered. One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise, the second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000. If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
