Do you fancy paying just 10% corporation tax?
No we don’t know Jimmy Carrs’ accountant, an initiative by the HMRC named The Patent Box, which begins in August 2013, rewards businesses who are actively developing and patenting new products and technology. A very attractive rate of just 10% should be a great incentive to get creative and invest in the development new and innovative products.
Fortunately we at 4D are experts in such things, and we would be delighted to help your business capitalise on this new opportunity.

At 4D we are always looking to invest in new technology’s that can benefit our clients.
We are pleased to introduce a new interactive virtual product review software tool. When we create 3D CAD data, we can now offer photo realistic, 360 degree interactive previews of the new product. The high level of quality means they can be used for anything from internal review, to attention grabbing content on the clients website.

An intriguing concept intended to increase interest in computer programming from an early age.
Designed in the UK, The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer board that plugs into a TV and a keyboard. It’s a miniature ARM-based PC which can be used for many of the things that a desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays High-Definition video and costs only £21.60!
The theory goes that programming knowledge has declined since the good old days of BBCs, Sinclair Spectrums, and Commodore 64s, when kids could experiment by writing programs for their home computers. Students entering computer based university courses now have more experience using spreadsheets and writing web pages due to school curriculum’s. Not much use when you want to create something new from scratch.
