Tax break indecision disappoints UKIE

Trade association UKIE has said it is ‘disappointed with indecision’ on the issue of games tax breaks in a newly-published report by Scottish Affairs Select Committee.

The 38-page report – of which its twenty key recommendations can be found here – concluded that there “are compelling arguments for a tax relief, and real concerns”.

The Committee wants the possibility of a games industry tax relief kept under review, and calls for the industry to be “monitored for the potentially malign effects of uneven international competition”.

The report also believed that game development tax breaks would not be introduced “in the foreseeable future”.
