Keen to offer tax incentives to companies in different creative sectors, the government has introduced the video games development tax relief. The relief means that companies can now claim up to 25% of their expenditure related to games development.

The only catch is that the development work has to meet certain conditions, the main one being that only games with a sufficient cultural link to the UK will qualify – the so-called ‘cultural test’.

In our latest article, we take a closer look at this new tax relief, introduced in April 2014.  We lead you through the steps required to qualify and pass the cultural tests, while our specialist tax advisers review the potential scale of the benefit available.
