Iceland offers a Tax Rebate for all international productions. This incentive targets feature films, TV dramas, series, and animations.
Reimbursements from the State Treasury equal to 25% of the costs incurred during production in Iceland as of 2017. Eligibility will be evaluated through a cultural test which focuses on Icelandic and EEA (European Economic Area) provisions.
If more than 80% of the production cost of a film or television program is incurred in Iceland, the rebate is calculated on the basis of the total production costs incurred in the EEA.
The application process is relatively simple and straightforward. Applications must be submitted to the Ministry of Industries prior to the starting date of the production.

One motivator is the 20% rebate offered by the Icelandic government on all production costs incurred for feature film, TV productions, and documentaries. This is probably the easiest 20% financing you’ll ever receive. In addition to the 20% tax rebate, we maintain regular contact with investors intrested in financing feature films and TV programs. Projects are evaluated individually based on the investor´s interest. We are often positioned to find an additonal 10-15% funding for projects we participate in.
