You wouldn’t expect an accountant to be able to spot the next big thing just as we wouldn’t expect you to have the specialist knowledge to sort out all the nuances of your accounts and taxes. Whether you’re negotiating a lucrative deal for a client, or signing a raw new talent, you’re likely to be gaining revenue at different times from different sources. This can bring complexities so why not free up your valuable time and let us help you to make the most of your earnings.

Our services are:

Accurate – Sealing the deal

Reliable – We never let a good thing go…

Just as you work tirelessly behind the scenes for your stars so that they can be centre stage, we’re there for YOU whenever you need us (we’re ridiculously flexible). We’ll also work tirelessly and continue to use our expertise to guide you through any complexities that may arise.

Whether you’re re-negotiating increased rewards, pitching to industry leaders or it’s ‘business as usual’, our advice can reduce your tax burden. We CAN help you to keep as much money as possible from all your hard work.

Meeting your need

Here are a few issues you might face and examples of how we can help you:

  • We’ll help you to maximise your earnings – whether you’re employed or self employed
  • If you’re self-employed, we’ll check whether your income is trading income (so you could claim more expenses) and ensure that you pay any tax twice a year via Self- Assessment.
  • If you’re employed, our experts will make sure that the correct tax is deducted at source by your employer.
  • In both cases, we’ll advise you regarding tax-deductible expenses

  • We’ll help you to take account of all expenses that can be claimed – from advertising and entertaining through to subsistence and travel.
  • Even if you don’t think you have any ‘fixed assets’ we’ll ensure that any deductions from your taxable income will be made.
  • If you opt for ‘simplified expenses’ under the new cash basis, you won’t be able to set off any losses against other income and this could limit your expense claims.
