Ukie submission to European Commission regarding their investigation into UK Games Tax Relief proposal

We believe that there is a clear and evident market failure relating to the production of culturally British or European games which the UK Government’s proposed games tax relief scheme would address. The European games industry is failing to keep up with the growth of its global competitors, resulting in a lack of culturally European games in all parts of the market. Measures such as that proposed by the UK government are vital if we are to ensure that games with British and European cultural themes continue to be made and to prevent Europe from falling further behind its competitors, both economically and culturally, in this important, innovative and highly influential industry.
