Global Incentives Inc. (formerly Independent Film Financing) was founded in 1997, and has since grown to become a highly respected and trusted industry leader.
We provide an intelligent approach to advising, facilitating, and administering incentives for film and television. We advise on how to streamline the process, what pitfalls to avoid, how to make sure your tax audit runs smoothly, and we prepare and administer the paperwork.
Our consistency from beginning to end, is a result of our in-depth knowledge of requirements, details, and audit and refund processes. We begin by obtaining all documentation upfront so that you can focus on other areas of your film production, while we take care of the incentives’ details.
We are the only tax incentive company that works on a global level, meaning we have the expertise to handle tax credits in any country. We also work with producers to structure, manage, and organize both Canadian content and international treaty co-productions.
Since 1997, we have administered over $2 billion in tax credits: approximately $750 million in Canada, $1 billion in the United States, and $250 million in other countries.
If you are a producer, it is important to know which tax incentives are the most suitable for your production. If you are a lender, you need to know which incentives are bankable and how long it takes for the refund to pay out.
We discuss with you what pitfalls to avoid, how to streamline the process, what type of incentives are best suited for your needs, and how to access more than one credit (if applicable). We then guide you throughout each stage, and provide your production staff with the tools to ensure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted.
Most importantly, we simplify the process, and maximize the benefit in the quickest turnaround time.
