audio & radio production business census

Audio Production Census 2022

Introduction, please read before beginning!

This work has been commissioned by AudioUK, the trade association for audio production companies in the UK.  They are commissioning this survey to get an idea of the monetary value of the audio production sector, in order to help make the case to government to introduce measures to grow the audio production sector - this includes initiatives such as an Audio Production Tax Relief, to bring more investment to the UK audio market. They are also seeking government skills funding, to bring government money to finance training in audio skills. Every additional response will help to make the data more comprehensive. AudioUK is a member-funded organisation, providing business and legal affairs support; the Audiotrain training programme; the Audio Production Awards and secures policy gains from government and regulators, as well as promoting audio production generally as a fast-growing creative industry.
