Join TBAT Innovation Ltd and Barclays for a collaborative workshop focused on how to benefit from Video Games Tax Relief.

Video Games Tax Relief allows UK game developers can receive a Corporation Tax reduction or rebate worth up to 20% of the core production costs of a game.

Many developers are either unaware of their eligibility for the Video Games Tax Relief scheme or are not yet claiming due to the complex guidelines and time-consuming nature of making tax relief claims.

As Tax Relief Specialists, TBAT aim to help as many businesses as possible realise that making a claim is hugely beneficial and to ensure the claim is to its fullest potential; while Barclays can provide expert financial advice and advanced funds against your future tax relief claims.

We will cover:

  • Introductions
  • Eligibility:
  • What/Who is a Video Game Development Company
  • Eligible Stages of Development
  • Eligible Expenditure
  • British Film Institute Cultural test & Certification
  • Intricacies of the Scheme
  • How to Claim via HMRC
  • Securing Advanced Funds against your future Tax Relief
  • Any Questions?
