Taking advantage of Louisiana Film Tax Credits by using Wonderland expertise and services will save money for production companies shooting commercials in New Orleans and Louisiana.

Wonderland does all of the work so the production company can focus on the commercial and still recieve the tax credit.

HOW IT WORKS

Commercials shot in Louisiana with budgets over $300,000 qualify for the Louisiana Film Tax Credit of 30%.  The film tax credit is “transferable”, that is, it can be sold.   This is an important feature of the film tax credit since most commercial production companies do not have Louisiana tax liability.  Once the tax credit has been certified, and Wonderland does all the work to make sure the project is certified by the state so the tax credit can be sold to either the state or to a private party or entity with Louisiana tax liability.  Wonderland makes that happen, knowing who buys tax credits and for how much.  (Generally the tax credits are sold for 80-85 cents on the dollar.

WONDERLAND TAKES CARE OF THE DETAILS.

CORPORATE AND BANKING RELATIONSHIPS

We have established companies with seperate bank accounts, certified to be in good standing by the Secretary of State, which act in coordination to receive the tax credit for the commercial. One company is the “Investor Company” which finances the commercial. The second is the “production expense” company responsible for all expenditures associated with the production, from start to finish.
