Media & Arts

We specialise in providing concise and jargon free advice to creative businesses. Our clients in this field include theatre and TV production companies, singers and musicians in both the classical and contemporary arenas, actors, technical freelancers in TV and theatre, and designers of everything from graphics to gardens. We have many very talented clients and are proud of our strong relationship with the Arts.

We have many years’ experience in dealing with specific issues in the Arts including withholding tax suffered by performers appearing internationally, the unusual arrangements for payment of National Insurance which only occur in the performing arts.


We assist a wide range of charities and associations with preparation of accounts, independent examinations, specific VAT issues and corporate governance.

We have an association with Counterculture Partnership LLP who are fast becoming one of the top providers of innovative financial and consultancy services to the third sector. Through this association we deliver strategic solutions to charities of all sizes with projects ranging from implementing improved accounting systems, through fundraising to planning and realising multi-million pound capital projects.
