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 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 sap 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 – be it 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 to keep going or grow. We support our gaming clients in all theses areas and lots more.

Specific tax reliefs

The gaming industry is one of the few that has been given a specific tax relief scheme (VGTR) and can use that 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, which really helps when your dev team is burning though cash.

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