Creative BC Tax Credit Procedures During COVID-19 Pandemic

May 5, 2020 | Motion Picture Tax Credits

The Creative BC Tax Credits Team is working from home and this has not impacted our processing of tax credit applications.

However, in response to the COVID-19 crisis, Creative BC has amended some of our usual tax credits procedures and application requirements until further notice, as follows:

  • Transmitted applications will be moved to the queue and assessed without receiving the application fee. Note that payment of the application fee will be required before a production is certified.
  • Creative BC continues to accept application fees by cheque mailed to our office. Please do not send cheques by courier as we aren’t there to accept delivery. Upon request, Creative BC can now accept electronic payment of application fees. Please contact for details.
  • Affidavits need to be signed but notarization is not required.

Please note that for PSTC applications, the Pre-Certification registration process is still in place.

If you have general questions, please feel free to reach out to a member of our team.

Stay safe!
