I offer full service accounting, tax preparation, tax compliance, and consulting services to recording artists, musicians and bands, recording labels, and other entertainment industry businesses.
I work closely with recording artists and others in the music industry through every financial and tax aspect of their musical career. I provide expert witness services, royalty audits, reviews of recoupables, penny letters, tour budgets, depreciation schedules, tax planning, and more!
I help entertainers with entertainment industry tax, royalty, and accounting issues. I provide entertainers an independent outlet to help manage or review finances. The difference between me and other professionals in the industry is that I do not share in a percentage of your entertainment revenues. This independence provides an additional trusted outlet to assess financial decisions. My entertainment niche provides the knowledge to manage financial needs and bring professional resources to the table for each growth phase.
My clients range from individuals who are part-time entertainers to seasoned industry professionals who have carved out successful careers. I provide ALL entertainers from: Musicians, Film & Television, Event Planners, Producers, Directors, Dancers, and more! The needs of our clients vary from tax return preparation and consulting to audit work related to their recording label expenses and royalty income.
