Why UK?

England, Wales, and Scotland’s stunning scenery, experienced crew, world class studios and attractive tax breaks make it one of the best places in the world to film.

Why London?

Approximately three-quarters of the UK’s film industry is based in and around London, meaning that it contributed roughly £1.2bn to the capital’s economy in 2016.

London is the third busiest city for film production in the world after only Los Angeles and New York. The capital’s world-class crews, locations, talent and competitive tax reliefs have sustained London’s position in the top three cities – and that also means demand for studio space is incredibly high.

UK Film Tax Relief

The UK government has recently introduced an enhanced tax relief for independent films, allowing a production company with an eligible project to claim back 40% of qualifying expenditure. This significant increase from the previous 25% is designed to bolster the independent film sector within the UK. Similar to prior tax relief schemes, there is no cap on the amount of tax relief that can be claimed, promoting greater investment in film production.

40% Indie Movie Tax Relief

To access the 40% tax relief, your project must meet specific criteria that affirm its contribution to the cultural and economic landscape of the UK film industry:

  1. Qualifies as British: Your project must pass the relevant BFI Cultural Test or be an official co-production. This ensures that the content contributes to the cultural richness and diversity of the UK film industry.
  2. Minimum UK Core Expenditure: A minimum UK core expenditure of 10-25% is required, depending on the tax relief being claimed. This includes projects made as official co-productions. Including a specific expenditure range encourages productions to invest significantly in the UK, benefiting the local economy and film industry.
  3. Intended Release Format: Your project must be intended for theatrical release to access the indie film tax reliefs. This stipulation is designed to support films contributing to the cinema-going experience, ensuring the relief supports projects aimed at a broad audience.


This update to the UK’s tax relief system represents a substantial incentive for the production of independent films, encouraging both domestic and international producers to consider the UK a prime location for film production. By offering a generous 40% tax relief, the UK government aims to stimulate innovation, cultural expression, and economic growth within the film industry, making it an attractive option for filmmakers worldwide.
