PSN South Africa taps you into film incentives in South Africa as well as Mauritius.
The South Africa government offers an incentive to co-productions filmed in the country in order to support the local film industry. Feature films, tele-movies, television drama series, documentaries, and animation with a total production budget of R2.5 million and above may benefit.
The available rebate is 35% of the first R6 million of Qualifying South African Production Expenditure (QSAPE) and 25% of the QSAPE on amounts above R6 million.
Applicants must create a Special Purpose Corporate Vehicle (SPCV) incorporated in the Republic of South Africa solely to produce the film or television project. The SPCV and parent company(ies) must have a majority of South African shareholders of whom at least one shareholder must play an active role in the production and be accredited in that role.
An applicant must be the entity responsible for all activities involved in making the production in South Africa and must have access to full financial information for the whole production.
PSN South Africa is also registered locally on Mauritius to extend the country's incentives to its clients. Commercial, feature film, and documentary projects may receive a 40% refund on qualifying production expenditures.
Our team is at the ready to partner with producers of qualifying projects in order to benefit from local incentives in Mauritius and South Africa. Contact us with the details of your project, and let's discuss how to make it happen!
An epic production we worked on for Infiniti, involving setting fire to high buildings, tigers licking girls, cars filled with water crashing through walls, helicopters, and tightrope walkers. Directed by Chris Hewitt from Knucklehead, written by the legendary Walter Campbell, photographed by Hollywood ‘A’ lister Paul Cameron, and with stunts and SFX superbly delivered by StuntSA. All together brought to life with a crew of more than 150 people, it was, as they say, a proper job.
