TIGA is the only organisation to have consistently campaigned for Video Games Tax Relief. TIGA always supported tax relief for games production and we waged a focused seven year campaign for the introduction of Games Tax Relief between 2008 and 2014.
Video Games Tax Relief has been available to UK games companies since April 2014 and applications have grown each year. According to HMRC, since the relief was introduced, 1075 video games have made claims, accounting for £2.6 billion of UK expenditure. A total of £324 million has been paid out to VGTR claims. In the year 2018-2019 alone, 345 claims were made for a total of £103 million, which represented 535 games.
