Tax breaks / incentives
Thailand now offers a base 15% filming incentive that can rise to 20% for shoots that employ key Thai crew and help promote the country's tourism sector.
To be eligible for the support, producers will need to spend the equivalent of $1.4m locally, but incentive payments will be capped at around $2.17m.
Thailand has also signed the Double Taxation Treaty with a number of countries, designed to prevent foreign filmmakers of member countries from being taxed twice - in Thailand and again in their home country.
The cabinet has also approved the exemption of film shooting fees in areas owned by seven state offices including the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, the Department of Fine Arts, the State Railway of Thailand, the Treasury Department, the Royal Forest Department, the Royal Irrigation Department and Suvarnabhumi Airport.
