South Australian Rebate for Games

22 June, 2020: South Australia’s games industry has been given a boost with an extension to the existing Post-Production, Digital and Visual Effects (PDV) Rebate to video game development.

The move will drive jobs growth and attract international investment to South Australia in a sector worth $180 billion globally, larger than the film and music industries combined.

The PDV extension is a 10 per cent rebate on qualifying production expenditure in South Australia, and is aimed at further growing the Creative Industries sector.

Further information about the SA Rebate for Games will be announced soon.
