Production payroll provider Cast & Crew Entertainment Services has expanded its tax incentive services to Canadian productions through its Cast & Crew Financial Services subsidiary.
Services will include incorporating Canadian production companies, setting up the production services agreement with the copyright owner, opening tax accounts, preparing HST filings, creating permanent establishments to be eligible for Canadian tax credits and filing accreditation applications.
Cast & Crew’s addition of enhanced legal and accounting services in Canada will help clients to ensure that their activities are conducted in compliance with federal and complementary provincial requirements. These services can be provided in conjunction with a tax credit loan or on a standalone basis.
“Canada is a very important market for Cast & Crew,” said CEO Eric Belcher (pictured). “With these enhancements, we now can provide a full-service production incentive offering in Canada for studio and independent production clients alike.”
