TIGA: Labour MP Backs TIGA’s Small Firms R and D Tax Credit Plans

TIGA, the trade association representing the UK games industry, today welcomed comments by Jim McGovern, MP for Dundee West, implicitly supporting TIGA’s proposals for improving the Small Firms R&D Tax Credit. TIGA also backed the suggestion by the Leader of the House of Commons, Sir George Young, that Mr McGovern should ask for a Westminster Hall or adjournment debate. Jim McGovern previously secured a Westminster Hall debate on June 29th 2011.

Jim McGovern said in a press release issued on September 8th that:

“There is a great deal the government could do that would better support the computer games industry. The most recent suggestion is to improve the Small Firm Research and Development tax credits scheme to include helping to offset the cost of premises, testing new products and Intellectual Property protection. This would better target support and tailor it to the needs of this industry.”
