By mmuise

The refundable tax credit for film production services, jointly administered by SODEC and Revenu Québec, is designed to stimulate job creation in Québec, essentially by encouraging foreign producers to choose Québec as a filming location.

Comments on Funding:

The base of the tax credit applies to all-spend production costs, which corresponds to the total of the qualified labour costs and the costs of qualified properties. The tax credit corresponds to 20% of the qualified expenditures incurred by an eligible corporation for services provided in Québec for the making of an eligible production.

Deadline: Rolling deadline
