Important Message for Film Incentive BC Tax Credit Applicants
December 21, 2021
Production companies are encouraged to apply for their tax credit certificates as early as possible – see the recommended timelines below. This is because Creative BC may require 6 months to process certificate applications. We are unable to guarantee that applications filed later will be processed in time for the production company to file with the CRA before the deadline, which may result in denied claims.
For an eligibility certificate, we strongly recommend that you apply as early as possible in the pre-production or production stage and no later than 12 months from the corporation’s taxation year in which principal photography began.

For a completion certificate, we strongly recommend that production companies submit applications within 12-24 months of the taxation year in which principal photography began.
