Theatre Tax Relief: 1st April Update and FAQs

Theatre tax relief claim changes effective 1 April 2024: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

From 1st April 2024 new rules apply for those claiming theatre tax relief. One of the new requirements is that all claims for TTR must be accompanied by an Additional Information Form. NB: Amendments to valid claims made before 1 April are not affected. The form must be submitted before or on the same day as the CT600 for each claim. For introductory guidance and the link to the form, please visit this webpage: Support your claim for creative industry tax reliefs.

HMRC has produced more detailed guidance, currently hosted in the Film Production Company Manual but applicable to all claimants.
