Australia offers percentage-based tax rebates to qualifying international productions and co-productions that are produced completely or partially in the country. These incentives are made available for fiction or documentary features, TV films or series, post production, and special effects. As of April 2019, productions distributed on SVOD's may also qualify.
The criteria determining eligible costs and the percentages vary according to the type of production and the state (s) that you shoot in.
The cost savings through the Producer Offset can be up to 40% with other incentives ranging between 16.5 -35%. Each state has various film funds that offer additional incentives to attract more filmmakers.
Please feel free to contact us for more information, we'd be glad to help.
Australia is known for its diversity. From beautiful beaches to pristine mountain ranges, alpine heaths to tropical rainforests; we also boast large, ultra-modern cities and the world’s largest coral reef. Included in this diversity is a very multi-cultural society with access to every ethnicity imaginable, with fantastic actors at all levels and ages.
Australia is also renowned for its professional, yet friendly and transparent approach to film production with some of the very best crews, equipment, and everything you need to bring your film production to life. Another plus is Australia’s industry obsession with technology, which means we’re experienced in specialty equipment such as: high-speed motion control robots, Super-TechnoCranes, camera cars, The Ultimate Arm, Flight Head, Libra Head, heavy lift drones, as well as the latest in VR technology.
With an annual average of 286 sunny days a year, you can take ultimate advantage of 10-hour shoot days in Queensland or 8-hour shoot days in New South Wales and Victoria.
And with offices in both Sydney and Brisbane, and producers based in Melbourne, we provide unique production solutions right across Australia.
