Creative sector tax reliefs

Creative sector tax reliefs

Our involvement in the creative sectors started in the film industry over 40 years ago. Since then we have seen numerous changes to the industry and the most recent in 2007 with the introduction of the tax credit regime for British films.

The tax credit regime was subsequently extended to animations, high-end TV, children’s TV, theatre, orchestras and from 1st April 2014, to video games, where we have already claimed substantial sums of tax credits and tax relief for clients.

We have gained a considerable amount of expertise in the creative sector tax reliefs through our work in the film industry and experience with HMRC, BFI and the DCMS. The services we can offer to help you include:

  • Structuring for British qualification under the Cultural Test (Film, TV, Animation and Video Games)
  • Structuring for British qualification under international co-production treaties (Film and TV)
  • BFI applications for interim and final certificates
  • Accountant’s report for the Cultural Test
  • Creative sector tax credit/relief claims
  • R&D tax relief claims
  • Comfort letters for financiers
  • Distribution and royalty audits
  • Assurance reports for grants
  • Compliance, support and taxation services.
