Costs & Tax Incentives
Costs. Local costs are relatively expensive since most goods need to be imported. Since little to no filming infrastructure exists all key crew and equipment must be brought in from abroad. Local transport is expensive. Accommodation particularly during the busy dry period can also be very expensive. Turks and Caicos trades in the USD. Our Turks and Caicos Islander fixer will negotiate local deals and provide the appropriate level of production support to match every budget.
