Session 12.5: Tax issues with IP and technology

With William Calokerinos, CTA, Wentworth Chambers and Aditi Rao, Level 22 Chambers

Intellectual Property is ever present in a modern business. Whether it be a tech start-up or just an ordinary enterprise that has invested in a website, marketing, branding and software.

This session will explore:

• Different forms of commonly encountered IP and intangibles, eg. copyright, trademarks, patents, goodwill and licences;
• Tax treatment of those IP and intangibles eg. capital depreciating, R&D, black hole, deductible, GST, single or multiple assets etc; and
• Optimising business structures to consider IP asset protection, capital raising, R&D grants, ESIC concessions, taxing on the way IN and OUT and other relevant matters.
