Fascinating Locations and Cultural Authenticity:
The captivating beauty of Colombia serves as an exceptional backdrop for a wide range of audiovisual and film productions across genres.
From the bustling streets of Bogotá that resemble those of any metropolis in the world to the ancient ruins of San Agustín and the breathtaking landscapes of Tayrona National Park, the country’s diverse locations provide endless possibilities for storytelling.
Álamo Audiovisual specializes in searching for, obtaining permits, and optimally utilizing these distinctive environments to enhance the visual impact and narrative depth of each story.
Incentives for International Productions:
Álamo Audiovisual has been involved in various production services, which has led to an understanding of the law and processes to assist international producers.
Colombia offers two incentive options for international productions made in the country: a cash rebate paid to the producer or a transferrable tax certificate issued to the foreign producer. These incentives apply to feature films, series, and commercials.
The cash rebate consists of 40% reimbursement for expenses related to audiovisual pre-production, production, or post-production, including artistic and technical services.
Additionally, there is a 20% reimbursement for logistical services such as accommodation, catering, and transportation, based on the amount spent in the country. On average, the rebate represents approximately 30% of the total local expenditure.
On the other hand, the transferrable tax certificate (CINA) is equivalent to 35% of the value of foreign investment made in Colombia for production services, with a percentage deducted from the certificate value before issuance, resulting in an approximate net value of the certificate ranging from 29% to 33% of the foreign investment.
Both incentives apply to services provided by Colombian entities or persons domiciled or residing in the country.
There are basic requirements to access these incentives, which you can consult with us for more information.
