It is not a secret that most of the top Indian films have been fully or partially shot abroad making Indian Film Industry a highly attractive client for countries who strive to develop their film industry by offering incentives like VAT refunds, cash back on qualified expenses, tax rebates and much more to international productions. Georgia is not an exception. This April, Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, Ms. Ketevan Bochorishvili and Film in Georgia Cash Rebate Project Coordinator at Enterprise Georgia, Tatia Bidzinashvili are visiting Mumbai to present to the major production houses the newly launched film incentive scheme “Film in Georgia”. Initiated by the Government of Georgia the scheme offers to international producers 20-25 % cash rebate of qualified expenses incurred in Georgia and aims to support the film industry development in the country. Besides offering financial benefits the Government of Georgia tries to create the favourable environment for producers and remove any bureaucratic obstacles that may occur during the production process. To accommodate the above mentioned “One – Stop-Shop” principle was implemented in the frames of the scheme which offers services like location scouting, assistance in procurement of permits and coordination with various stakeholders.
