Also, the Spanish government offers tax incentives for international filming productions. These incentives are applicable to any Spanish producers registered on the Ministry of Culture and Sport's Film Company Register, who are managing a foreign production. This means that they are the ''service company'' which takes on the executive production and which carries out the tax procedures involved in applying for a tax rebate. The laws which regulate these incentives can change every year, so it is worth informing yourself of any aspects which have changed during the year you are applying for your production.
