"Some of these tax credits will help us to expand; it’s definitely helped our business to grow.”
Based in Stafford, Live 5 Ltd are one of the UK’s leading independent digital gaming creators. Their brand new, imaginative games are a breath of fresh air for players who are bored with the same re-worked and replicated games. Rapidly growing within the global mobile gaming market, the team consists of passionate and entrepreneurial individuals who produce high quality content.
Pushing the boundaries of what is possible, Live 5 believe in being original – and one of the key ingredients to the company’s success is innovative games.
Software development was necessary to advance the technology behind the games and the expertise of a contractor was employed during the initial stages of the innovation project. New staff members, including talented programmers and graphic designers, were sourced to bring development in-house, enabling the creation of more complex games.
“R&D tax credits have definitely helped the business. We’re a small business, so financially anything saved is good because anything we make is reinvested into the business… It goes into hiring more people, growing the team. Some of these tax credits will help us to expand; it’s definitely helped our business to grow.” commented Oliver Vlaytchev, Head of Online Delivery at Live 5.
