Creative Industry Tax Relief was extended to include the video game industry in April 2014.
Video Games Tax Relief (VGTR) applies to UK registered companies and operates in a similar manner to existing UK Film Tax Relief. Please note that gambling games are specifically excluded from this relief.
Are you entitled to claim Video Games Tax Relief?
Your company will be entitled to claim VGTR on a Video Game if:
- the game passes the BFI cultural test;
- the game is intended for supply to the general public;
- the game is not made for advertising or promotional purposes; and
- At least 25% of the core expenditure is incurred on goods and services within the European Economic Area (EEA).
