THAILAND: Overseas Film Productions Set for 15-20% Cash Rebate on Local Spend
Overseas film makers who film and produce in Thailand are now eligible for a 15% rebate on qualifying local spend. An additional 3% rebate is available to productions with a Thai cast, while a further 2% is on offer for those deemed to promote tourism in Thailand.
The incentives are open to movies, TV series and other mass market films, but TV commercials and any production thought likely to cast Thailand in a negative light are not eligible. To qualify, foreign production companies in possession of valid filming rights have to provide evidence of having spent at least THB50 million (US$1.4 million) on Thai registered businesses or other related Thai services and individuals.
