The New Zealand Screen Production (International) Grant made available to qualifying production expenditure is 20% for television, film, other non-feature formats, post, digital, and visual effects. The grant is a cash rebate (not a tax rebate) and gets paid out after completion.
The New Zealand Domestic Screen Production Grant is 40% for local films and television including qualifying coproductions. New Zealand has coproduction treaties with 17 countries.
Qualifying expenditure includes goods and services provided in New Zealand, including offshore above-the-line cast (for whatever period they are in the country) and crew if they are in New Zealand for more than 14 days.
