Making your vision work financially as well as creatively is hard work. Our team of specialist media accountants and tax advisors are more than just number crunchers, we have a passion for your sector; we understand how it works and exactly what support you need to be successful.

We’ve been working with the film industry since the 1960s, so we’re not newcomers, we’ve built up an impressive catalogue of experience. Our clients have included cult niche productions to international Oscar winning films.

It doesn’t stop there, we have close links with the music industry, with performers, composers and publishers. We also work with clients in TV and theatre, both on the screen and behind the scenes, including agents and casting directors.

We know you need more than that, you need….

Our commitment to your success

We have the technical ability you need and experience and sector knowledge you want, but most importantly we are interested in you and what you are doing, and are as eager for you to achieve success as you are. That’s our commitment to you.
