Livingstone: Tax breaks will create new jobs

Though we’re yet to learn the specifics of how exactly the government’s promised video games tax breaks will take shape, Eidos life president Ian Livingstone has praised Chancellor Darling’s decision to heed the industry’s calls.

I’m excited to hear the government has listened to our calls for tax relief,” he told MCV.

The video games industry makes a valuable contribution to the UK economy and this government initiative can only help to support further growth.

"I’m sure it will encourage investment in the UK, preserving existing jobs and creating new ones; helping to re-establish the UK to the forefront of the global industry in the creation of new video game IP.”
