Industry body Ausfilm has created an Australian Screen Incentives Calculator designed to help content producers calculate what incentives and offsets they can combine from Federal, State and Territory Governments, and who to contact to find out more.
“There have been some fantastic productions that have filmed and completed post and VFX in Australia recently,” says Ausfilm. “What helped these productions get an edge? Australia’s talented and remote-ready post and VFX companies, Aussie studios, crews and competitive government incentives and grants.”
The tool is not an official Australian Government tax incentive estimate, certification or approval. Applicants will still need to apply to the relevant government agencies, but Ausfilm says it can assist users in that process.
