The video game industry is known for its dynamic and rapidly changing landscape, making it challenging for small development teams to stay on top of their finances while keeping up with game development. The costs of making a mobile game range from $150-200K, and small indie studios often work with budgets barely, or not at all, covering those costs. Our services can help you avoid costly mistakes and missed opportunities as we provide you with the expertise and experience to manage your finances.
As a small gaming company, it can be difficult to manage finances while juggling the many other responsibilities that come with game development. For many developers, managing accounting, finance, and taxes can be a significant source of stress and distraction from their core work. Our financial management services can alleviate this burden, allowing you to focus on your passion for game development while leaving the financial details to us.

Tax services for gaming companies

Our game studio CFO can provide invaluable tax support and advisory services to gaming studios, helping them navigate the complexities of tax regulations and incentives. By leveraging their expertise and experience, gaming companies can optimize their financial performance through tax savings, achieve their objectives, and stay compliant with tax laws.

Gaming companies can benefit from a range of tax incentives and tax-friendly structures, both local and international. However, navigating these programs can be a complex and time-consuming process. A fractional CFO can help by assisting gaming companies in understanding the available opportunities and whether they are qualified to reap their benefits. 

For instance, a game studio CFO can help in terms of:

  • Identifying and securing tax Incentives, especially those related to R&D activities and IP exploitation.
  • Structuring incoming and outgoing transactions with the goal of reducing or eliminating tax leakage, e.g. due to withholding taxes.
  • Local and international structuring assistance in order to maximize utilization of available tax benefits such as low statutory tax rates, tax holidays etc. 
  • Achieving efficient and simple alignment with tax compliance requirements.
