Advocating for grants and tax incentives for game development
Despite being part of the screen production industry, our sector has in the past been excluded from all federal screen funding and incentives, and often limited state and territory support too. For years we fought for a 30% tax offset for game development, something we achieved when the Australian Government announced the introduction of the Digital Games Tax Offset (DGTO), and we continue to fight for the ability of game developers to access Screen Australia funding. We also lobby for strong, cohesive, and effective funding and incentives for game development across the states and territories.
