212 games approved for UK games tax relief in 2017

first_img212 games approved for UK games tax relief in 2017Government initiative to fund more games development continues, with a further 182 titles receiving interim certificationJames BatchelorEditor-in-ChiefWednesday 31st January 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareMore than 200 games were certified for video games tax relief in the UK last year, according to new figures from the BFI.A total of 212 games received final certification for the government’s financial incentive, up 12 per cent over the 189 certified in the previous calendar year, and almost 100 more than the 116 certified in 2015. In addition to these games, a further 182 received interim certification – a three per cent improvement on the 176 approved in 2016.UK spend and total budget connected to games certified for tax relief were both higher than 2015 and 2016. Over the past twelve months, tax relief has stimulated £277m in total budget spend. Meanwhile, UK/EEA spend was recorded as £249m.Hopefully, the number of British studios that benefit from tax relief will increase as the government confirmed it has extended the initiative to March 2023.Any developers keen to take advantage of these incentives, which effectively reduce cost of games development, would do well to read Ella Romanos’ guide on how to get the most out of tax relief.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

Yet with Brexit contributing to the UK’s economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for the UK to reinforce its most successful industries, including the video games sector. “We must retain video games tax relief and explore the potential for making it even more effective to support our games industry.”UKIE CEO Jo Twist added: “It’s excellent to see an increasing number of games receiving both final and interim certifcation, demonstrating the continuing demand for the video games tax relief. Similarly, the increase in UK / EEA spend highlights the relief’s important role in driving investment in the UK games industry.”Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

first_imgJay Kriegel (Credit: Kent Presents)Jay Kriegel, a senior adviser at Related Companies and former chief of staff to Mayor John Lindsay, has died of cancer at age 79, a Related spokeswoman confirmed.Kriegel had a lengthy career in New York City and served as Lindsay’s chief of staff from 1966 to 1973. His accomplishments during his tenure included opening the city’s Washington office, creating the Civilian Complaint Review Board and serving as the city’s first director of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.Kriegel also led New York’s bid to host the 2012 Olympics, co-founded The American Lawyer magazine and worked as a senior vice president at CBS. He served as chairman of Brooklyn Jewish Hospital and on the boards of Prep for Prep, New Visions for Public Schools and the After School Corporation as well.He joined Related in 2007 and helped the company complete the launch of its massive Hudson Yards project.ADVERTISEMENT“The energy Jay brought to his work made him a cherished personal and professional friend, mentor and leader in the Related family,” Related chairman and founder Stephen Ross said in a statement. “For nearly 40 years, he worked tirelessly with officials in the City of New York, Washington D.C., and the business community to help build a better city for all New Yorkers.”The Real Estate Board of New York plans to posthumously honor Kriegel with the John E.

EHF Challenge Cup: SKA Minsk with one hand on the trophy, wins 31:26 in Luxembourg

first_imgShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsSKA Minsk and Spartak Mironovic are on the way to return the club where it was at the end of the 80’s, when the club won three times the EHF Champions League in 1987, 1989 and 1990. This time SKA Minsk won the lowest in ranking European Competition – the Challenge Cup – but with the superb play they’ve showed this season and also the fact that they are pretty much able to parry Dinamo Minsk and Brest Meshkov in the domestic Belarussian Championship, we can surely expect them to challenge a higher in rank EHF Competition next season.In the first leg of the Challenge Cup final, SKA Minsk won 31:26 against Handball Esch in Luxembourg, and with this victory the second-leg seems only a formality. Pukhouski was the game’s top scorer, while at the same time he is the Challenge Cup top scorer as well. Meshkov Brest beat SKA Minsk for Belarussian Cup trophy 2016!

Young entrepreneurs work and learn in South Bend

first_imgA week before fall break, 14 young entrepreneurs in the Young Leaders from the Americas Initiatives (YLAI) Professional Fellows program arrived in South Bend to spend four weeks in professional exchange with local companies and industries.The State Department program helps entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Caribbean improve businesses in their home countries. Two hundred fifty people in the program are divided among 21 U.S. states. Notre Dame’s Initiative for Global Investment is hosting and supporting the 14 in South Bend. “This program is amazing, as we get to know entrepreneurs from our area,” Daniella Garcia, a program fellow, said. “In November all the [250] of us will be together for a conference in Washington D.C. There will also be investors pitching us, and lots of networking, and we are all excited.” Garcia is the founder and owner of Elemental, a tech teaching center in Bolivia. YLAI assigned her to a local programming school in South Bend. “I’ve learned the methodology in teaching, and I’m helping them with the plan for a summer camp in June,” she said. “In Bolivia, we really need some funds, so South Bend coding school is also teaching me how to get grants from government and nonprofit organizations.”The 14 entrepreneurs are assigned to different companies in South Bend according to the industry in which they work at home. Karla Pacheco, director of the Cocrea Creative Agency in El Salvador, is working for Pathfinders, a marketing agency. “I’m learning how big companies like the Pathfinder are organizing their team and work,” she said. “My goal is to organize my team more sufficiently so we can have more clients.”  It is easier to get ideas accepted in the U.S., said Santiago Yelmini, co-founder of LATIO 6, an entrepreneurship community in Argentina. Yelmini is working on a learning forum that will help entrepreneurs present and implement their ideas more effectively. “In our own countries, it is harder to start a company to go from an idea to a concrete body, not just because of the social conditions, but because of all the resources regarding education, regulations and access to financial support,” Yelmini said. “The struggles of everyone telling us we aren’t going to make it is another big difficulty for us entrepreneurs. People here are more used to seeing new businesses grow,” Pacheco added.John Paul Arvelo, president of Servicios de Seguridad y Resguardo, said while his society is losing hope, entrepreneurs are trying to solve the country’s issues.“My initiative is about providing protection services to companies, houses and individual people. I’m trying to build an awareness in people, to teach them how to apply law and save their lives,” Arvelo said. Germán Santillan Ugarte is the CEO and Founder of Oaxacanita Chocolate, a company which strives for the economic development of the Oaxacan Mixteca by hiring artisan cooks and palm craftsmen and by using local raw materials. He learns how to improve workers’ efficiency by using machines and skills here in South Bend, Ugarte said. “We all feel very welcomed here at Notre Dame,” Ugarte said. “The day when I arrived, there was a little note saying ‘Welcome home, Germán.’ It turned out that all the stereotypes about Americans are not true because all the professors and students are so nice.”Tags: Institute of Global Development, State Department, YLAIlast_img read more
