Animation Tax Relief (ATR) is part of the UK's suite of creative industry tax reliefs.

The relief is only available for animations and video games that pass a 'cultural test’ or qualify through an internationally agreed co-production treaty certifying that the production is a 'British film', 'British programme' or 'British video game'.

In all cases, formal certification is required to qualify and this is administered by the British Film Institute (BFI) on behalf of the Department for Culture Media and Sport.

Specialist advice is required to ensure that claims for Animation Tax Relief are correctly formulated and only reference qualifying core expenditure. This excludes expenditure incurred on, development, distribution and other non-production activities. It also excludes any costs which have already qualified for R&D relief.
