Theatre Tax Relief

Theatre Tax Relief commenced on the 1st September 2014 and is available to all theatre production companies, both commercial and charitable, within the charge to Corporation Tax. Subject to the company and the theatrical production meeting the qualifying conditions as set out in the legislation in Finance Act 2014.


Some of the common questions include:

- What are the implications for charitable companies commonly exempt from Corporation Tax?

- Is it necessary for a charity to operate through a trading subsidiary?

- What constitutes a ‘dramatic piece’?

- What is the Commercial Condition and what qualifies as an educational production?

- How to apportion costs between Core and Non-Core activities?

- How do you demonstrate the intention to tour?

We are here to help you with all the above and more, so that you receive the Theatre Tax Credit to which you are entitled.
