Tax shelter

From screenplay to movie

The well known Belgian Tax Shelter system has been successfully
encouraging the production of audiovisual works in Belgium for ten years. We encourage our investors to follow the production from start to finish.

The Tax Shelter system is a tax incentive allowing the Belgian or foreign companies established in Belgium to invest in works intended for cinema or television and to obtain in return tax deductions reducing the taxable profit.
The system is open to Belgian productions as well as qualifying international co-productions with Belgium.

Who can benefit?

convident investments


Both Belgian productions and international co-productions can benefit from the tax shelter system. Picoux has been active for years in (inter)national co-productions, such as feature films, shorts and documentaries.


The eligible investor is the resident company or the Belgian establishment of a non-resident company other than:

  • an eligible production company such as mentioned in the second point (or a company which is linked to this company); or
  • a broadcasting company, which signs a framework agreement pursuant to which it commits itself to pay sums in order to receive a tax shelter certificate.


For the Investor:

The investor prefinances the producer’s expenses;

  • reduces temporarily his/her taxable income.
  • Up to 310% of the investment is deductible by the investor and receives a remuneration for the sums paid calculated on the basis of EURIBOR’s rate – 12 months + 450 basis points
  • receives a Tax Shelter certificate, which allows him/her to change the temporary cut of his/her taxable income into a permanent cut.

The investment is limited to 50% of the reserved benefits during
the taxable period, with a limit of 750,000 € per taxable
