Croatia offers percentage-based reimbursements to international producers of feature films, documentaries, animation, TV features, and TV series that are produced completely or partially in the country. Commercial productions are not eligible.
The benefit is based on the cost of Croatian tax residents (cast and crew) working in Croatia, as well as goods and services purchased in Croatia.
The Croatian Cultural/Qualifying Test comprises three categories, including the use of European cultural content; creative collaboration, with Croatians or Europeans in leading roles and the crew; and the use of Croatian production capacities, such as studios or locations. To be eligible, the project has to score 12 out of 34 points, granted that at least 4 points are scored in each category.
You can earn back up to 25% of the qualifying local expenditure.
