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.
The appeal of shooting in Australia came from the range of different locations required and their ease of accessibility for this film shot in South-East Queensland and New South Wales. Urban cityscapes to lush green bush and, of course, the beach; all of these locations were within close proximity of each other, making for a quick and convenient two-day shoot.
