KPMG Film Financing and Television Programming Taxation Guide

A resource for producers, studio and streaming production executives, tax executives, finance executives, and attorneys involved with the commercial side of production.

For anyone involved with the commercial side of production, doing business across borders can pose major challenges and may lead to potentially significant tax implications. A detailed understanding of the full range of potential tax implications can be as essential as the actual financing of a project.

The Guide helps industry executives assess the many issues surrounding cross-border business conditions, financing structures, and issues associated with them, including development costs and rules around foreign investment. Recognizing the role that tax credits, subsidies, and other government incentives play in production financing, the Guide includes a robust discussion of relevant tax incentive programs in more than 35 countries.

Each focuses on a single country, and provides a description of commonly used production financing structures, as well as their potential commercial and tax implications for the parties involved.
