Incentives Scorecard: U.K. a Leading Global Production Hub

UK Film Production Incentives

The U.K. is one of the world’s foremost production hubs, even rivaling California. This results from the country’s rich theater, film and television traditions; stunning northern vistas; world-class studios such as Pinewood and Shepperton; a wealth of skilled above- and below-the-line talent; and, perhaps most of all, from generous public subsidies: Qualifying productions can receive a hefty 25% cash rebate.

0 Limits on budget levels of qualifying film productions
$1.46m Minimum expenditure per broadcast hour for scripted TV productions
0 Cap on amount that can be claimed
10% Minimum percentage of costs that must be spent on qualifying U.K. expenditures
