Production of Multimedia Titles

Québec is well known for its creativity and innovative flair in the multimedia sector. To give Québec multimedia companies an extra boost and help them carve out a place among the top industry players, a tax credit is offered for the production of multimedia titles.

What can your company receive?

A refundable tax credit covering up to 37.5% of your eligible labour expenditure.

 

To be eligible, your business must:

Produce eligible multimedia titles in Québec:

 

  • titles produced on an electronic medium and run using software that supports interactivity;
  • related titles, such as digital animation films associated with an eligible multimedia title produced by your company.

 

Perform eligible production work:

 

  • all operations necessary to produce the multimedia title, commencing with the design stage and indefinitely thereafter.*

*For an application for a production work certificate submitted prior to October 1, 2013, eligible production work refers to the work carried out for the purpose of completing the production stages of the title, commencing with the design stage and concluding 36 months after the date of the initial marketing of the title (previously, “the completion date of the final version of the title”).
