“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…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.”
