Our Creatives- Design

Accountants to the creatives

The design industry is all-encompassing, varying from graphic design to architecture, all the way through to animation. The UK is known for keeping ahead of the curve in the design sector on a global scale, and is the largest in Europe, with strong cultural and historical significance. Packed full of talented, creative individuals, it is important that the design industry receives the best possible support to further encourage such dynamic and exciting growth.  In such a large industry, with so many greatly differing roles, it is important to ensure you’re getting your accounting right. With this in mind, it is always recommended to seek professional, specialist advice, leaving you free to concentrate on what you do best. Despite the range of roles available in the industry, many clients face very similar accounting issues.  The design industry is ever changing, as are the rules and regulations that govern its financial matters. As such, it is important that your accountant fully understands and keeps up with the ever-changing design landscape. At Hilton Consulting, our team specialise in accounting for all things creative, meaning we are perfectly positioned to help you succeed. 

Tax Relief in Design Industry

“Patent Box”, also known as ‘intellectual property box regime’, allows businesses in the design industry to make profits through their patents and reduce the tax paid on those associated profits. The UK Patent Box is a relief from corporation tax - and is only available to qualifying companies. Hilton Consulting can help you to determine if you qualify for the UK Patent Box relief. There are also other tax reliefs you may qualify for, including Copyright and Intellectual Property tax relief. Our team are only too happy to help with any questions or enquiries you may have in relation to the services we offer.
