In addition to its tropical beauty, the country is host to a Pinewood production facility built in 2011, complete with soundstages, bluescreen capabilities, and an eight-acre tank for water effects. No non-U.S. This comes on top of an incentive of 25%. territory in the Caribbean offers as many production amenities as the Dominican Republic.
The minimum spend required is $500,000, and the sunset date is set at June, 2021. The country also offers up-front monetization solutions, which are outlined in the language of the incentive.
In addition it includes a value-added tax exemption on all eligible goods and services. There are no project caps. The incentive takes the form of a 25% transferrable tax credit on all eligible expenditures in the Dominican Republic. It covers both resident and non-resident labor.
Among the services offered: issuing the mandatory shooting permit and processing the temporary import of goods and equipment necessary for filming. The Dominican Republic Film Commission is available to serve as a liaison between government agencies and production companies, providing information as needed about the eligibility criteria and application process for the incentives.
