Media Release: French Duncan adds bite to TIGA


LEADING mid-tier accountancy firm, French Duncan, is adding its expertise to free workshops organised by TIGA, the trade association representing the UK’s games industry, about the Treasury’s proposed Games Tax Relief.

French Duncan partner, Jeff Meek, who acts for a number of clients in the creative and technology sectors, including the video games industry, will deliver presentations on how tax breaks will work in practice.

“Chancellor, George Osborne, promised a games industry tax break during his Budget 2012 speech,” he said.

“But where do we go from here? How will it work? Who will benefit? These workshops will provide games industry operators with more information about how the tax break is proposed to work in practice.”

Two free workshops, open to both TIGA members and non-members, will take place Wednesday 18th July, the first in Dundee at lunchtime at Scottish Enterprise’s offices at 12pm, the second in Edinburgh at French Duncan, 56 Palmerston Place at 6.00pm.

A spokesperson added: “TIGA is the non-profit trade association representing the UK’s games industry. Its members include independent games developers, in-house publisher-owned developers, outsourcing companies, technology businesses and universities.

“The Treasury’s consultation on creative sector tax breaks runs until September.”
