Film, TV, videogames, and commercials working through us can qualify for a reimbursement of up to 17.5% of their total spend in Mexico.
10% of that figure is derived from the 0% VAT applied to international projects due to the 'export product' status. The remainder is a cash rebate known as ProAV, which is available for projects with a minimum spend in Mexico of 40 million pesos in prep & production (approximately USD 3.5 million) or 10 million pesos in post (about USD 770,000). When combined, the minimum spend is 40 million pesos.
Contact us about your project, and we'll happily answer any questions to help bring your shoot to Mexico.
