The Cultural Tests (Films, Television Programmes and Video Games) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This Instrument will ensure the continued smooth operation of the UK's cultural tests for films, television programmes and video games after the UK has left the European Union. The cultural tests are used to assess whether films, television programmes and video games are culturally British and are therefore eligible for tax relief on production costs.
