Plus Accounting recently became a partner of Ukie, the trade body for games and interactive entertainment in the UK.
Ukie is a not-for-profit representing businesses of all sizes from small start-ups to large multinational developers, publishers, and service companies, working across console, mobile, PC, esports, VR, AR and artificial intelligence. The trade body aims to support, grow and promote member businesses and the wider UK games and interactive entertainment industry by optimising the economic, cultural, political and social environment needed for businesses to thrive.
As a firm, we have a keen interest in this industry and Luke Thomas works with a number of start up and established studios across the South East and becoming a partner of Ukie was the obvious next step. Luke says ‘Plus Accounting has seen exceptional growth in our Video Games Development company sector over the last couple of years. I believe there are exciting times ahead for the UK games industry and we are keen to support this. I cannot reiterate enough how important it is for VGDCs to claim VGTR. It is an extremely valuable source of finance for VGDCs. I hope more VGTR claims being made will show the government how valued this tax relief is and ensure it is retained as a relief for the foreseeable future.’
As you would expect from a firm of chartered accountants, we offer a comprehensive range of accounting and tax services for clients that operate in the Video Games Development sector. So whether you are planning on starting out on your own, opening a new indie dev’ studio, expanding your studio or the time has come to consider a sale, we can provide you with the support and guidance that you need.
What makes us stand out from the crowd is our genuine interest in you and your business. We take time to understand what is important to you and then tailor our services and advice to your requirements. You may need guidance on the most appropriate tax structure for your new business, help raising funds to expand, guidance on improving your accounting system and KPI reporting or an EMI share option plan to incentivise key staff. Significantly, we also have extensive experience in dealing with video games tax relief claims for our clients. We can help with all of these matters and much more.
