There is a 20% cash rebate on local production expenditure to encourage foreign producers to shoot feature films, TV series, and documentaries in Czech Republic. No incentive is offered for commercial projects.
There is no cap on the total rebate, but there is a minimum qualified expense:
o CZK 15 million (EUR 556,400) for a theatrical, TV, and animated feature (at least 70 min. per episode)
o CZK 2 million (EUR 74,200) for a documentary feature (at least 70 min. per episode)
o CZK 8 million (EUR 296,700) for an episode of a TV series (at least 30 min. per episode)
o CZK 1 million (EUR 37,100) for an episode of animated series (at least 5 min. per episode)
In addition to the 20% cash incentive, there is up-to-10% rebate on qualifying international spend (calculated as 66% rebate on withholding tax paid in the Czech Republic by international cast & crew), with maximum eligible costs set at 80 % of the total budget. Payment in two instalments can be arranged.
Applications and rebates are not fixed to specific dates. Timing is a prime consideration since a service agreement must be signed, and at least 10 shooting days in Czech Republic must have been completed within 4 months after submission of the application.
We are positioned to assist producers with further qualification requisites such as a cultural test and tax residency in Czech Republic.
