Jarvus Films Releases CreditScout
Jarvus Film has released CreditScout, which the company says is the first tax credit estimator for the film industry. With a core functionality that taps directly into existing industry-standard budgeting software such as EP Budgeting, the company says CreditScout seamlessly links into a producer’s pre-production workflow and provides dynamic results.
CreditScout gives producers an informed take on what tax credits are available in each state or Canadian province based on their budgets. The application then provides solutions and ideas for increasing credit, and will soon introduce a network linking all of the film commissions with these results.
CreditScout is constantly updated as tax incentives and rules change throughout the US and Canada. The calculations and scenarios have been vetted and tested using thousands of previous models by several industry veterans.
CreditScout is available on a subscription basis with plans ranging from $19 to $249 a month.
