The UK offers up to a 25% tax relief on non-UK projects that are partly or fully made within the UK. Qualifying sectors are feature films, high-end television, animation, children's television and video gaming. Television Commercials are currently not part of the incentive.
The project must qualify as British by either passing a Cultural Test (a points based series of questions mostly focussed on the cultural content, crew, locations, cast) or can qualify as an official co-production.
Each sector has different requirements for tax relief qualification but are mainly factored by core UK expenditure (video gaming UK/EEA), airtime, minimum budget spend and content that is intended for broadcast (including internet) or theatrical release.
Theatrical productions, orchestral concerts, and exhibitions are also able to reclaim tax and have their own guidelines and requirements but do not need to apply for and pass a cultural test.

Superstar footballer, Alexis Sanchez, is at the heart of this campaign for the Chilean market. The high-profile player was shot in a London studio over one day. We also provided a photographer for the stills campaign alongside the live action film.
'Working with Madam was a true delight. We needed a production company that could help us with a tight budget and a huge challenge that involved shooting a soccer superstar. They did an incredible job and made our first experience shooting in London a splendid one. Can't wait to work with Madam again'
