The government extended tax incentives to designers and producers of digital games,publishing the requirements in the Government Gazette on Friday (B’ 1228/2019).
The initiative was signed by Deputy Ministers of Digital Policy, Telecoms & Information Lefteris Kretsos and Economy & Development Stathis Yannakidis, respectively.
A similar incentive for filmmakers has been in effect for nearly a year.
Under the digital games regulation, up to 35% of selected taxable expenditures could be written off within six months of a project’s completion.
Commenting on the initiative, Kretsos said that “the state recognises digital games creators as audiovisual content producers, and as partners of equal standing in the effort to grow the A/V industry in Greece.”
