CANARY ISLANDS. THE SMART FILMING
The Canary Islands, the Spanish archipelago visited annually by millions of tourists attracted by its ever spring climate and its unique landscapes, is currently living a phenomenon related to the filming by a growing number of Spanish and foreign producers who have chosen the islands as scenarios of their stories in these last years.
But what is the reason that has aroused so much interest in shooting in the Canaries? Undoubtedly, the extraordinary tax incentives offered in the islands (40% tax rebate for foreign productions and up to 45% for national productions). As an outermost region of the European Union, the Canaries have a specific economic and fiscal regime that allows up to 20 points more benefits for investments; an 80% higher than in the rest of Spain.
The Canary Islands also offer a long list of places that are so beautiful and incredibly diverse that youll be surprised how close they are to one another. The Archipelago meets all the requirements as a natural setting due to its mild climate and its more than 3,000 hours of sunlight throughout the year, notwithstanding being a leading tourist destination, gifted for that reason with proper hotel infrastructure and excellent air and sea connections, besides something that is valued very much at the moment: security.
Production in the Canary Islands is easy. Professionals in the audiovisual sector are really hardened in all kind of productions and the local film commissions are ready to provide full assistance. As if this were not enough, if you decide to set up your business here you will pay a reduced corporate income tax rate of only 4%.
