QPE Definition

John Elliot — WInton


Queensland Production Expenditure (QPE) refers to the direct economic impact that productions have while filming in Queensland. QPE targets are set for all major projects that receive investment from SQ through a range of programs. Successful achievement of these targets is essential and for this reason our offical QPE Guidelines are available for download below or contact us fore more information.




For projects contracted prior to 1 July 2019, the QPE definition shall be as set out in the contract or if a previous link is referenced in the contract please contact us for a copy of the previous QPE definition.
