Is there a time limit to apply for a completion certificate?
Yes. A completion certificate must be issued by Creative BC within 30 months from the end of the corporation's fiscal year in which principal photography began. Documents required at the time of application are set out in the FIBC Checklist. If you fail to submit your application and documents on time, or do not allow Creative BC sufficient time to issue the completion certificate, your eligibility certificate may be revoked. If the eligibility certificate is revoked, the production corporation is not entitled to FIBC and must repay any monies received for that production.
