Entertainment, media and arts

Our collaboration with clients in the entertainment, media and arts sectors began in the 1950s and has continued to the present day. Accounting, reporting and taxation is a world of regulation far away from the imaginative and creative exploits of our clients in this sector but strong administration is key for any business.

Supporting writers, producers, performers and artists

Our clients include musicians and artists, as well as theatre and film production companies. We can support all aspects of administration including:

  • Cash flow management and reporting to rights holders and investors
  • Statutory accounting and audit
  • Specialist income assurance reviews
  • Business modelling and forecasting
  • Royalty management
  • Raising finance
  • VAT, payroll taxes, corporation tax and personal tax
  • Enterprise Investment Scheme for film producers and other qualifying businesses

There are complex issues to consider and we have the experience to provide advice. For example, our royalty management work requires an understanding of royalty agreements, care and attention to cash collection and reconciliation, and the skill to conduct royalty audits. We provide peace of mind to our clients who know their affairs are in good order, and they can grow their businesses and creative works by ensuring all revenues are received.
