Details of the film production companies that have claimed corporation tax relief cannot be released because of HMRC’s duty of taxpayer confidentiality.

HMRC publishes annual statistics on the creative industries corporation tax reliefs, including film, theatre, video games, high-end television, children’s television and animation. The latest release of this publication can be found here:

A breakdown of these tax reliefs by geographic region is only available at disproportionate cost.
