SAVE UP TO 40% ON YOUR POST & VFX SPEND IN AUSTRALIA

CONSIDER AUSTRALIA: INCREDIBLE TALENT AND EXPERTISE COMBINED WITH GREAT SCREEN POST & VFX INCENTIVES  MAKE AUSTRALIA YOUR PREMIER DESTINATION FOR PDV WORK.

Sequels, franchise films and television shows such as Spider-Man: Far From Home, Aquaman, Black Panther, Captain MarvelGame of Thrones, Preacher, The Leftovers, Reef Break, Thor: RagnarokThe LEGO® Movies and the Harry Potter films are just a few of the productions that Australian VFX studios have worked on.

IT MAKES FINANCIAL SENSE!

Australia has long been a trusted VFX provider, however, there is an extensive range of other eligible picture and sound post services, international filmmakers can access in Australia and receive the 30% Post, Digital and Visual Effects (PDV) Offset.

If a production spends AU$500,000 on VFX (or post, sound and music) it is eligible for a 30% tax rebate on every dollar spent.

PLEASE NOTE UPDATES: The Australian Government announced changes to the PDV Offset and its guidelines on 30 September 2020. The threshold for QAPE spend will increase from AU$500,000 to AU$1 million and will come into effect for productions that commence PDV activity on or after 1 July 2021. See updates and changes to the Guidelines here.

Some Australian states also offer additional PDV incentives of up to 20%:

The state governments of Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia all offer an additional 10% PDV Offset. Western Australia offers 20% on spend of up to AU$500,00 and 10% after that and Victoria offers up to 10% on PDV spend in their state.
These can be combined with the federal government’s 30% PDV Offset, taking your PDV incentive to up to 50%.
