The granting of the facilities will allow the selected development teams to benefit from a tax credit equal to 25% of the cost of production of their video game, within a ceiling of one million euros. However, we would point out that in order to have access to Tax Credit, a number of requirements will have to be met, including:

Legal seat within the European Economic Area;

Be subject to Italian taxation by reason of tax domicile or by the presence of a permanent establishment in Italy;

Share capital and equity not less than EUR 10,000 each;

A figure not less than the recognised tax credit must be spent within the European Economic Area;

The video game that is the subject of the application must be “culturally valuable” at the indispensable judgment of a special commission;

The tax credit may not exceed 50% of the eligible cost of the video game;

The deadline for submitting applications for the concession, we remember, is 31 January 2022.
