Creative Sector Tax Credits

For businesses operating within the creative industry, there are a range of available tax reliefs available.

Depending on your business circumstances, you may be entitled either to claim a larger deduction, or a tax credit when calculating your taxable profits.

The qualifying criteria for claiming creative industry tax reliefs include being liable for Corporation Tax and being directly involved in the production and development of:

  • Feature and documentary films
  • High-end and children’s television programmes
  • Animation programmes
  • Video games
  • Theatrical productions and orchestral concerts

Film Tax Credits

To qualify for these tax reliefs the film or other creative media must pass a cultural test or qualify through an internationally agreed co-production treaty – certifying that the production is a British film, British programme or British video game.

At Richard Anthony, we have assisted many organisations through the complex area of creative sector tax credits and have been successful in obtaining substantial tax credits for our clients. For more information on how we can help your creative business, please contact us.
