In the wake of newly expanded R&D tax credits in the country, the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment has signed a deal with consultancy Jumpstart to help provide members practical help in obtaining such credits.
Jumpstart's 31-person team of technical and scientific experts will help UKIE members put together accurate and compliant tax credit requests to HMRC at "exclusively preferential rates," according to an announcement of the partnership this week.
The consultancy claims a 98.6 percent success rate in helping companies save in excess of £12 million so far.
"Mastertronic has recently worked with Jumpstart, to maximise our R&D tax break revenue and I personally recommend that all UKIE members make use of the excellent service that Jumpstart provide," said UKIE Chairman and MD of Mastertronic Andy Payne.
UKIE has recently begun lobbying the UK government to put computer science education on the national curriculum.
