UK spend is generally that part of the production budget spent in the UK (see notes to Figure 18.3). As with aggregate budgets, 2011 saw a record total of UK spend (£1,534 million), with 2013 being the second highest at £1,107 million (up from £879 million in 2012). The previous peak of UK spend was in 2004 and 2005 when well over half the total production budget was contributed by co-productions. However, the UK spend of co-productions has always been less than that of cultural test/production costs test films. In 2013, cultural test films accounted for 94% of the UK spend of finally certified films.
