The Producer Offset, administered by Screen Australia, is one of three refundable tax offsets for film production.
The others, administered by the Department of Communications and the Arts, are:
- the Location Offset, a 16.5 per cent offset on qualifying Australian production expenditure (QAPE) for film and television projects filmed in Australia with an Australian spend of over $15 million, and
- the PDV Offset, a 30 per cent offset on the QAPE that relates to post, digital and visual effects production for a film.
Find out more from the Department of Communication and the Arts website.
Note that the Producer Offset, the Location Offset and the PDV Offset are mutually exclusive. Therefore, a company is not eligible to claim the Producer Offset for a project if that project has received a final certificate for the Location or PDV Offset. Find out more.
