STV response to UK Govt. plans to introduce tax breaks within TV industry

Tagged in: Press Releases
"STV has consistently called for incentives to encourage increased production to Scotland and we view the UK Government's plans to introduce tax breaks for the TV industry as a first positive step forward.  However, we believe there is an opportunity to extend this further by allowing all TV productions to qualify for similar tax incentives. Scotland is blessed with a world class creative talent set but we need to ensure that Scotland can compete on an international scale, and this is something we would also be keen to discuss with the Scottish Government.”
