Working together with commercial companies

Whilst Film Tax Relief was introduced in 2007, the later reliefs (TV, Animation, Video Games, Theatre and Orchestra) were introduced from 2013 onwards and can be considered reasonably new and somewhat specialised.

For the Film, TV, Animation and Video Games Tax Reliefs which all require cultural certification, we are happy to support you through the BFI certification process if required.

We will review all the activities of the company to ensure that we determine all qualifying productions and qualifying costs.   Working with your own accounting records and your end-of-year accounts, either prepared by the company directly or your accountant if you have one, we prepare all of the computations, ensuring that the claim is for the maximum allowable under the legislation.  Once these have been prepared, we will either submit the claim within your Company Tax Return or an amendment to your Company Tax Return. 

If HMRC ask any questions then we will answer these on your behalf.

Once HMRC has settled the claim, payments of tax credits are made directly to the company’s bank account, we will issue our invoice.    

We are also to assist pre-production to ensure that maximum benefit is gained as well as provide specialist advice in the event that HMRC have opened an enquiry.   

For an informal discussion about how we can help your company claim the tax relief due, contact Graham via email at: [email protected]

 

Testimonials

"I am so pleased and relieved that Graham got in touch with me about Theatre Tax Relief. I had mistakenly thought that we were not eligible but so far Graham has claimed nearly £100,000 in tax credit for us. This is not only an enormous benefit and can be ploughed back into the work that we do but it would have been extremely short-sighted of us not to be claiming the money that is due to us. Graham has made the whole process so simple and easy. I cannot recommend him highly enough"
Sarah Gobran, Co-Founder & Producer of The Guildford Shakespeare Company
"With no clear guidance on how to claim Theatre Tax Relief and after spending a considerable amount of time consulting with colleagues, accountants, reading huge, incomprehensible HMRC guidelines and generally worrying that the company was missing the TTR boat, I spoke to Graham. Everything was plain sailing for us after the initial consultation – with very little effort on our part, Graham made a successful submission and we have just received a substantial payment. I am delighted at the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending Graham and his company"
Sue Andrews, former Executive Director of Northern Broadsides Theatre Company
"When Graham first contacted us, we hadn’t heard of Theatre Tax Relief, which made us fairly wary. Graham took the time and care to explain it all to us and how the process would work. Initially, we were sceptical and worried about the time it would take for us to collate all the information needed for the claim. However, we needn’t have worried, Graham helped us every step of the way and made the process simple and quick. We would recommend working with Graham in an instant."
Fliss Green, Senior Strategy & Project Manager of Chain Reaction Theatre Company
"When I first heard from Graham I have to say I was more than a little sceptical. Why had no one mentioned this to us before? The information seemed so monumental – shouldn’t it have been on the news? Within a few emails and phone conversations, we had provided all the information necessary and had everything thoroughly explained to us. Within two weeks we had received the tax credit into our bank account! Creative Tax Reliefs are amazing!"
Clare Molyneux, Artistic Director of Open The Door (Theatre in Education) C.I.C.
"Our accountant struggled with VGTR so we engaged Graham and his company. Graham prepared all the necessary computations and submitted the claim on our behalf. This was paid by HMRC without question and in an amount in excess of what we had previously expected. We are delighted and cannot recommend Graham or his company highly enough"
Ashley Stancill, Director at HyperSloth Games
"I have been aware of Theatre Tax Relief for a few years now but the process of claiming the money was daunting. We didn't have the resources or the expertise to make the claim. Graham made the process of claiming Theatre Tax Relief very straight forward. He kept me informed of developments and answered all my questions. I provided him with information and he did the rest"
Shona Rattray, General Manager of the Hopscotch Theatre Company
"Thanks to Graham's guidance and patient support, we have successfully created a production company so that our orchestra can now benefit from the Orchestra Tax Relief scheme. His expertise gave our committee the confidence to proceed in what at first appeared a daunting task and has guided us through the process so that we are now in a position to claim OTR on our forthcoming season"
Julie Leach, Treasurer of Bolton Symphony Orchestra.
"It was a pleasure to work with Graham. He explained the process very clearly, prepared all the necessary computations and submitted the claims on our behalf. We are extremely delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Graham and his Company to others"
Sylvia Collins of the Huddersfield Light Opera Company
"Graham explained very clearly what was needed and then delivered exactly as he said he would. Graham prepared the computations and submitted the claims on our behalf and we didn't have to deal with HMRC at all. This was the easiest piece of tax work that we have ever had to do"
Matthew Quirk of The Merry Opera Company
