Statement from the British Film Commission as the tax relief for high-end TV is confirmed to be in place from 1 April 2013.

Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of the British Film Commission and Film London said: “This is fantastic news for the industry. That the TV tax relief is in place just a year after it was announced is testament to the Government’s understanding of how vital the production industries are to the UK economy in terms of job creation and investment. Building on the success of the film tax relief, the British Film Commission is already working hard with our partners both here and in the US to ensure that the UK has as much success in attracting major international TV production as we do in attracting major international features.”
