James Cowper Green Tax Break Seminar – April 2010


In the last few years “Green Taxes” have been an important part of the Chancellor’s annual budget speech. Environmental factors are increasingly used to justify amendments to Government tax policy. 

But are there significant tax advantages to be gained?

Sharon Bedford, tax partner at James Cowper LLP will attempt to answer this question by examining recent Green Tax initiatives.

Are you  

·         A Company carrying out R&D into new clean technologies – How do you make the most of government incentives?

·         An Investor wanting to fund emerging technologies – What tax breaks are available?

·         A business implementing a green procurement policy – Can you be environmentally friendly and save tax?


As part of a joint initiative with Science Oxford and the Clean and Green Festival, we are delivering a seminar which will answer all of the questions above on Tuesday 20 April and we feel it may be relevant to you and your company, the seminar will be held at:

Science Oxford
1-5 London Place
