What is the total budget of the production?
NZ$ 100%
What is the budget for New Zealand elements?
NZ$ %
What is the budget for the co-production country’s elements?
NZ$ %
What is the budget for the third country
(non-co-production country) elements?
NZ$ %
The percentage to be spent on New Zealand elements (dened below) must be reasonably similar to the percentage of
nancing raised by the New Zealand co-producer.
Expenditures on New Zealand elements includes:
New Zealand cast and crew fees and related expenses (per diems, travel and accommodation) whether they are in New
Zealand or not;
New Zealand facilities and equipment costs;
A proportion of the insurance costs, completion guarantee fee and other general expenses;
Legal costs incurred by the New Zealand co-producer; and
The cost of any third country goods or services incurred by the New Zealand co-producer.
Note: Expenditure on New Zealand elements for the purposes of a co-production is unlikely to be the same as qualifying
New Zealand production expenditure for the purposes of SPG. For example; costs relating to the services of New Zealanders
performed overseas during pre-production do not count as New Zealand production expenditure for the purposes of SPG but
do count as New Zealand expenditure for the purpose of co-production.
