Ambitions for growth
Games give lift to Henderson Loggie fees
Scottish accountancy firm Henderson Loggie has won a number of contracts from creative and interactive media companies which will contribute to its aim to grow fee income by 40% in the sector over the next year.
New clients include Ninja Kiwi, creators of Bloons, Bloons Tower Defense and SAS Zombie Assault games. Other are Bristol-based Twice Circled, creators of Big Pharma, and indie games studio Team Junkfish, creators of Monstrum, founded by Abertay University graduates Jaime Cross, Simon Doyle and Adam Dart.
With 25 years’ experience advising companies in Scotland’s flourishing games sector, the specialist team at Henderson Loggie also acts for the UK Games Talent and Finance Community Interest Company which manages the £4 million video games fund launched last year by UK government to boost the UK’s growing games industry.
Henderson Loggie partner and creative media specialist Steve Cartwright said; “We have grown up with the sector and have built up such wealth of knowledge since the late 1980’s when the gaming industry was in its infancy, that we are fortunate to be recognised as leaders in the creative industries field.
“We have high ambitions for growth, and are delighted to welcome our new clients on board. Constant change is the norm in their industry where one of the major challenges is monetising products.
“We have particular strengths in helping companies to grow sustainably, providing specialist tax advice, including advising on the new Video Game Tax Relief and cross border trading insights to ensure companies are well prepared for their international markets.”
