Investing in Films with Templeheart
Film investments are classified as Alternative Investments and are a viable and interesting way of diversifying an investment portfolio. If you’ve ever dreamed of walking the red carpet or chatting with the Stars then a film investment can make this dream a reality.
Films are often classified as higher risk investments, but given the huge range in film budgets, genres, distribution outlets, tax credits and benefits, as well as producer track records, it is unfair to group all film investments as equally risky. By structuring a film project as a UK business and using SEIS and EIS, UK taxpayers can benefit from some very generous HMRC tax reliefs. These benefits can be worth up to 70% of the investment. Add a 20% return from the UK Film Tax Credit and up to 90% of the potential risk can be removed from the investment. Investing in a project that reduces the risk to as little as 10%, while maintaining all the unlimited upside potential of a successful movie, obviously makes film investing a seriously viable option. Not only that, but consider the added bonus of all profits being completely tax free!
The brand new Now Or Never Film Festival in Gran Canaria screened two of Templeheart's films and Marcia Do Vales was tasked with helping to choose winners from an excellent selection of short movies. We hope this is the first of many and look forward to collaborating again with Now Or Never.
