Tax credit

According to Italian law, foreign cinema and TV productions may claim a tax credit of up to 30 per cent of the eligible production costs. However, foreign producers cannot apply directly for the Italian tax credit. Only Italian service producers, taxable in Italy, are entitled to do so, which is why these apply for and receive the tax credit on behalf of foreign producers.

The tax credit is based on the costs incurred during production and applicable are only those production costs incurred in Italy itself.

Italian service producers may offset the tax credit with every other type of tax (F24).

The tax credit is one of the few of its kind worldwide that provides for an application already during production.
