Tax Credits

All Spend Tax Credit

Budget 2022 announced a new All Spend Film and Video Production Tax Credit. The 30 percent tax credit will apply to total qualified production costs with a maximum tax credit of $10 million annually per project.

Labour Based Tax Credit

The Newfoundland and Labrador Film and Video Tax Credit program is a fully refundable tax credit based on a 40% rebate on eligible Newfoundland and Labrador resident labour expenditures. The tax credit is calculated as 40 percent of the total eligible labour expenditures to a maximum of 25 percent of the total eligible production budget.

The film and video industry tax credit is a fully refundable corporate income tax credit administered on behalf of the Department of Finance by the Newfoundland & Labrador Film Development Corporation (NLFDC). It is an integral ingredient of film financing throughout Canada and allows each province’s economy to pull in new investment and create high quality employment.

Applications must be made before first day of principal photography for any project. The tax credit is co-administered with the provincial Department of Finance.
