Multimedia
A favourable tax climate


Québec believes in its multimedia industry. The proof? Our government was the first—back in 1996—to offer generous multimedia tax credits. Designed to boost Québec production, the credits significantly reduce operating expenses and give businesses locating in Québec a definite edge.

 

Our experts are readily available and would be delighted to speak to you about our enticing refundable tax credits.
