Getting Film Permits In Mexico
When you decide on filming in Mexico, incredible locations flood your mind. You probably picture yourself capturing the charm of colonial towns on camera. Or maybe developing a plot having the vibrant life of bustling urban spots as background. Either way, what should not get in your way are the film permits. With the help of a professional, even the most intricate protocols feel accessible. And this is where we come into the scene.
Fixer Mexico is the kind of partner you want to have aside when nagging paperwork arises.
To proceed with your plans, documentation needs to be in place from the beginning. No matter the purpose or location of your production, you have to contact the authorities.
Filming in Mexico is the type of activity regulated by the Mexican Film Commission. Granting film permits can take up to a month if you plan shooting in protected areas. Archaeological sites or natural reserves usually require more processing time. Given the country’s rough political conditions, their precaution is rather understandable. So, you need to ensure you allow enough time in your calendar for your application review. Film permits are easier to obtain with our assistance.
Contact Fixer Mexico and let the experts guide you through the woods of paperwork.
Tax Rebate & Cash Incentives For Filming In Mexico
From a filmmaker’s perspective, there is one thing better than a top production fixer. Governmental support makes a great difference in developing the videography industry. And filming in Mexico is no exception from this rule. That is why the tax-incentive program aims to attract projects from foreign investors.
As a top production company in the area, we know how the tax rebate scheme works. Based on the kind of production you are filming in Mexico, you qualify for various deductions. The key requirement is to involve the local workforce and resources. Film producers benefit from the VAT exemption as long as the film has external exposure. Promoting the local culture, customs, or locations is, in the end, compensated. All expenses associated with the “product” get reviewed and approved by the IRS (SAT).
Incentives for filmmakers are, usually, granted by the Federal Cinematography Law. And, of course, small-scale incentives can also be available. Small towns scattered around the country can have generous offers or discounts. Lodging or transportation, discounts on various services, may be at your disposal. But you should check and discuss these potential aspects on the spot.
Team up with a top production company in Mexico to guide you through the protocols. Let us help you make the most of the incentive opportunities.
