Entertainers and Musicians Taxation & Accountancy Services

About Us

Well, it says at the top, doesn't it? Entertainers and Musicians Taxation & Accountancy Services.

WHAT?

We are a firm of accountants that began in 1984 and evolved into a firm that are now specialising in dealing with tax and accounts puzzles for people in all branches of the entertainment industry; Musicians, Actors, TV & Film production people, Stained glass window designers and lots of other strange and wonderful people. We tend to be dealing with people who have found themselves self-employed by accident, rather than people who wanted to be their own boss.

If you don't think you fit in the above list of people, don't worry as that's not all we are limited to. We have experts in the office that come from all different backgrounds, so why not drop us an email or give us a call to see if we can help. We are happy to talk things through with you and give you a free no obligation quote.

HOW?

We're very good at what we do. Well, we would say that, wouldn't we...? 

However, to give you some idea of how good, the firm has grown from its humble beginnings of Geoff, and through his contacts at his previous employers Lubbock Fine and Deloitte & Touche he was able to get things started off with a mere 25 Musicians in 1984 to about 850 very varied clients in 2012. This growth is totally through word of mouth recommendation so we're definitely doing something right.

WHO?

The Accounts department is Alan, Bob, Ellie, Jamie and Matt.

The Limited Company section is mainly Alan and Jamie

The Tax Department is MichaelGeoff, and Jamie, but you will get sensible answers from all staff. 

Jane runs the office and she, Bob, Ellie, Jamie and Matt handle VAT Returns, while Geoff does bits of everything else.

HOW MUCH?

No pussyfooting around! Our 'average' client currently pays us between £250-£300 + VAT for their accounts although this can be a little less (or quite a lot more) according to how complex their accounts are and how organized they keep their books.

In addition to this if we are preparing Tax Returns there is a further £100-120 + VAT or so for preparing a Tax Return and other tax work.

This is a lower level of fees than our competitors. Bigger firms tend to charge more, as well as losing some of the personal relationship that we see as an important component for people who have just blundered into self-employment.

Company Accounts… we tend to charge a lot more as there is a lot more to do, so on average our Companies pay between £500-£600 for their accounts, again this can be a little less (or quite a lot more) according to how complex their accounts are and how organized they keep their books.

In addition to this, we charge on average £100-£150 + VAT for the Corporation Tax Return (CT600)

Why not give us a call as we understand that every client is different in their own right and we can talk through things and maybe point you in the right direction from the off.  Whether you are new to self employment or a veteran we are likely to be able to help. If you think we can, we will be happy to give you a free no obligation quote.

WHERE?

Nottingham. It's a nice place and we've been here since relocating from London in 1988. Every so often one of us will visit London to zip around and see clients. That way, we aren't saddled with overheads (which results in higher fees) and don't have to spend any longer than necessary in London!
