Animation Tax Relief
Animation Tax Relief (ATR) was introduced in April 2013 by the Government after the success of Film Tax Relief in 2007.
At Nyman Libson Paul we have successfully completed many film and TV tax credit claims, and recently the first ever successfully concluded Animation tax credit claim in the UK, through our industry expert Dave Morrison.
Not only do we understand the process of claiming Creative industry tax relief but our experts have industry knowledge in the structuring and running of film, TV and animation companies to ensure the entire project runs smoothly and successfully.
Your company will be entitled to claim ATR on an animation programme if; the programme passes the BFI cultural test (similar to that for FTR but within the European Economic Area) or be an international co-production, the programme is intended for broadcast, at least 51% of the total core expenditure is on animation, at least 10% of the total production costs relate to activities in the UK.
However, your company cannot claim ATR if the programme; is an advertisement or promotional programme, is a news, current affairs or discussion programme, is a quiz or game show, panel show, variety show, or similar programme, consists of or includes an element of competition or contest, broadcasts live events, including theatrical and artistic performance, is produced for training purposes.
