What is the time limit for applying for a completion certificate?
An eligible production corporation should apply for a completion certificate as soon as the production is completed. A completion certificate application must be received by British Columbia Film within 30 months from the end of the corporation’s fiscal year in which principal photography began. All documents and information required by British Columbia Film within this 30 month timeframe. We suggest you submit your application and documentation as early as possible so British Columbia Film has time to review your application and notify you if you are missing any documents or information. Please refer to the checklist on the British Columbia Film website for all information required. If you fail to submit your application and documents on time, your eligibility certificate may be revoked. If the eligibility certificate is revoked, the production corporation is not entitled to the FTTC and must repay any FTTC received for that production.
