Since introducing the Production Incentive Program in 2012., numerous projects choose Croatia as a location for their production.

The Incentive Program is administered on a first-come, first served basis. The rebate is calculated on the total qualifying expenditure, without including value added tax. Qualified spend consists of the costs of goods and services purchased in Croatia and wages paid to Croatian tax residents (both cast and crew) for services carried out in Croatia. Besides production incentive, a film project with international partners can also benefit from the selective minority co-production support.

Cash rebate is 25 % with additional 5 % for productions in regions with below average development. Qualifying production formats include:

  • Feature films
  • Documentaries
  • TV drama
  • Animation

The incentive does not apply to commercials, reality TV, game shows and soaps.
