UK games industry awaits decision on tax breaks

Video games companies in the UK are waiting to hear if they’ll get a discount on how much tax they have to pay.

Officials at the European Commission are due to decide whether a government scheme would give firms in Britain an unfair advantage.

Those against tax breaks argue that the video games market is healthy and that subsidies could harm competition.

But UK companies say the country is losing out to others like Canada and France who already offer tax breaks.
