1-2-1 Meetings

The Certification Unit team are available for 1-2-1 sessions for anyone wanting to discuss a project in relation to the creative sector tax reliefs for film, high-end television, animation television, children’s television and/or video games. You can request these from the meeting scheduler when you sign up for a delegate pass. Please give as much information as possible about your project.

The BFI Certification Unit is the first point of contact for applicants wanting to qualify their film, high-end television programme, animation programme, video games or children’s television programme as British through the cultural test or as an official co-production and to access the UK’s creative sector tax reliefs. The Certification unit will offer guidance on the qualifying processes for the cultural tests and official co-production treaties for the tax reliefs.
