The full costs of acquisition can now offset against the taxable income of the company or business based here. This means that companies and businesses can now increase their asset base by registering their business name, product or brand as a trade mark, register or acquire (by purchase outright or licence) domain names, existing trademarks, patent and many other intellectual property items such as copyright, know-now or trade secrets and write off the costs as a capital allowance against the taxable income of that business.
