Yorkshire firms boosting innovation

Have your say

Yorkshire businesses are set to take full advantage of reliefs aimed at encouraging innovation, according to Deloitte.

The business advisory firm says patents granted to Yorkshire companies are at a five year high, suggesting they are well placed to take advantage of the Government’s new Patent Box tax relief to encourage innovation.

Stuart Cottee, head of tax at Deloitte in Yorkshire, said: “These are encouraging figures for Yorkshire’s economy.”
