UKIE Partners With R&D Specialist Jumpstart

May 20, 2011 -

British video game industry trade group UKIE announced today that it has signed a three-year deal with research & development tax credit firm Jumpstart, giving members access to the company's services at reduced rates. UKIE members will also be able to get free advice about how research and development tax credits benefit their businesses through an exclusive UKIE help line.

"I welcome this new partnership between UKIE and Jumpstart, not only as a UKIE board member but also as the MD of my own business Mastertronic," said UKIE chairman and MD Andy Payne.

"Mastertronic has recently worked with Jumpstart, to maximize our R&D tax break revenue and I personally recommend that all UKIE members make use of the excellent service that Jumpstart provide," he added.

Jumpstart employs tax specialists that are capable of identifying eligible projects for a proper R&D submission. The company works directly with the staff involved in development to ensure HMRC criteria for eligibility are met. The firm then does its best to secure a tax benefit for the developer in the form of a payable cash credit, a tax rebate, or an enhanced deduction that can be used against future profits.

Jumpstart says that it has a 98.6 percent record of success. The company also claims that it operates a "no-win, no-fee" policy for its services.

"The UK's games industry has proved time and again that it has world-beating potential, but support from government and government bodies have been lukewarm to say the least," said Jumpstart director Richard Edwards.

"We are delighted to have been invited on board by UKIE to help make a real difference to the finances of companies involved in the development effort which will take this vital sector forward. R&D tax credits are a notoriously complex area and it makes sense for directors to use the services of specialists, so that they can get on with what they are good at – which is making international blockbuster games."

Matthew Wilsonwhile the article itself isnt that great, but the point is still valid.04/20/2015 - 3:14pm
Andrew EisenProfessionals do need to be mindful of what they say on social media though. That's true.04/20/2015 - 3:11pm
Andrew EisenWell, it was almost a decent article from Techraptor. Some day. Some day...04/20/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://techraptor.net/content/gamings-pr-problem both game devs and pr people alike need to to keep in mind, when your on twiter you are also representing the company you work for.04/20/2015 - 2:39pm
E. Zachary KnightI don't really care either way, but that was just my understanding based on previous reads.04/20/2015 - 2:13pm
E. Zachary KnightBut now I am confused. I thought Johnny Storm was the adopted one, but the dad is black. Does that mean that Sue is adopted or is it just an interracial marriage with existing children?04/20/2015 - 2:12pm
E. Zachary KnightNew Fantastic 4 trailer finally shows powers and just a wee bit of whimsy. Not too much mind you. No need to dilute the dark and brooding. http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/trailers/431505-the-new-trailer-for-fantastic-four-is-here04/20/2015 - 2:11pm
E. Zachary KnightOk. Just checked another of my Twitter accounts and there is a setting, opt-in. So it looks like a slow roll out.04/20/2015 - 1:17pm
E. Zachary KnightI agree. I looked but could not find any settings for DMs. So either there is no opt-out or they are slowly rolling it out one block of users at a time.04/20/2015 - 1:11pm
Andrew EisenI can't find the setting for direct messaging but I agree, it should absolutely default to off.04/20/2015 - 12:54pm
