Level up

Building a video game sounds like a dream job, but it is also extremely hard work and often a money pit. We help you manage the development so that you not only survive the game but can come out victorious.


Dev, test and then dev some more

You start with a great idea, you build a dev team and it seems so simple. Sometimes it is – which is great.

However, more often than not, there are unforeseen issues. More bugs than expected, little features that zap time and before you know it the development time has increased in length and the cash is running low.

Well, don’t worry. We can help, whether it’s assisting you with cash flow management, managing video game tax relief (VGTR), dealing with upscale or scaling down the team, or trying to raise funding for growth. We support our gaming clients in all these areas and lots more.

Specific gaming tax reliefs

The gaming industry is one of the few creative industries that has been given its own specific tax relief scheme (VGTR). It can be used in conjunction with other tax schemes such R&D.

This means your game development can help you to not only pay less tax but in many cases, receive a cash injection from HMRC. This can really help when your dev team is burning through the coffers.

We can process these tax claims for you as part of the year end returns.
