Creative Industry Tax Reliefs are a group of 8 Corporation Tax incentives that allow qualifying companies to increase their amount of allowable expenditure. This can reduce the amount of Corporation Tax your company needs to pay.

If your company makes a loss, you may be able to surrender the loss and convert some of all of it into a payable tax credit.

Working together, we help you determine your eligibility, identify qualifying productions and expenditure and prepare the HMRC form. We will submit your claim with your tax return and liaise with HMRC on your behalf. Once HMRC are satisfied that your claim is valid, they will pay the tax credit into your company’s bank account.

Your company can claim creative industry tax reliefs if it’s:

  • liable to Corporation Tax
  • directly involved in the production and development of:
    • films
    • high-end television
    • children’s television
    • animation television
    • video games
    • theatrical productions
    • orchestral concerts
    • museum or gallery exhibitions
  • involved with decision-making
  • directly negotiates, contracts and pays for rights, goods and services
