You may not realise this, but our Federal Government is a huge fan of your work.
Seriously. They love what you do, and they’d love you to make your next project here. That’s why they’ve developed these three enticing incentives:
Screen Australia is the Federal Government funding body for the Australian screen production industry and, being such big movie fans, they offer two very generous Producer Offsets, for feature films and for everything else.
Here’s the fine print: The value of the Producer Offset is calculated based on a project’s qualifying Australian production expenditure (QAPE). It is worth:
Eligible projects must have Significant Australian Content to be entitled to this incentive.
Crikey! What does Significant Australian Content mean?
This is what Screen Australia considers when assessing a production’s Significant Australian Content:
Now here’s the good news. Official co-productions automatically meet the significant Australian content test.
But wait, there’s more!
A 16.5% rebate is also available on qualifying expenditure to large budget film and television productions that film in Australia.
Want to take advantage of our award winning post production facilities? Smart move. There’s a 30% rebate available for projects that spend at least AU$500,000 on post, digital and visual effects work in Australia – regardless of where the production was shot.
Don’t forget to double dip.
Now for the really, really good news – the mutually exclusive Producer, Location or Post/Digital/VFX offsets can be combined with any of our state incentives.
