UK spend for co-productions may include some expenditure on UK goods and services which took place outside the UK. Figures may not sum to totals due to rounding. UK spend as a percentage of total budget is typically lower for co-productions than for cultural test/ production costs test films (Table 18.3). At the beginning of the period the co-production UK spend share was usually around one third, although it was as high as 75% in 2008 and 45% in 2009 when the number of co-productions was particularly small. UK spend has been relatively high in the last few years: 42% in 2011, increasing to just over 60% in 2012 and falling slightly to 58% in 2013. The annual UK spend share of cultural test/production costs test films has ranged from 63% to 91%, and in 2013 was 77%.
