Star Wars Brings Big Business Back to UK
Reported by Justin on 28 Aug 2013 19:06

Variety has a brief article posted on their site outlining a few of the key benefits of having Episode VII (as well as the rest of the Sequel Trilogy and the spinoff films) filmed in the UK, including some favorable tax credits.

Blighty’s tax credit of 25% of qualifying production expenses for films that spend up to £20 million ($31 million), and 20% for films that spend over that total was recently added to the TV and animation sectors. There are rumblings that a standalone VFX incentive may be in the works as well, as Soho is flush with top pros and looking for post-“Harry Potter” biz.
