‘Tax reliefs for film, high-end television and animation have made production in the UK more attractive than ever.
As of August 2020, there were 300 British films completed in 2019-20 which claimed Film tax relief (FTR), with UK expenditure of £2.5 billion. These figures are likely to increase as more claims are received by HMRC. Since the relief was introduced in 2007, 3,470 films have made claims, accounting for £18.4 billion of UK expenditure.’ (https://www.thecreativeindustries.co.uk/site-content/industries-tv-film-tv-film-why-the-uk)
