The Government keeps all tax reliefs under review, and regularly receives proposals for changes to tax reliefs. When considering proposed changes, HM Treasury must ensure they provide support to businesses across the economy in a fair way and represent good value for money for the taxpayer.

In 2019-20, the Government provided £18 million of support to 565 productions through the Orchestra Tax Relief.
