It doesn’t really matter whether you’re starting a business, going self-employed or if you’re already trading – business advice is essential if you’re to effectively manage every element of your venture. While our media accountants specialise in a niche industry, the knowledge and insight we’ve gained over our many years’ of combined experience has given us a fantastic awareness of exactly what business advice is most valuable to our clients, whatever their chosen sector.
If you’re just starting out, the first thing you may need help with is developing a business plan; this is essential if you’re going to be relying on a cash injection from elsewhere to help you get things moving. If you’re applying for a bank loan or investment from another external source, having a robust business plan is the first step in convincing them that their money is safe in your hands.
Our media accountants can help you through every step of the process when starting or growing your business. From deciding what kind of company you should set up, to working out the most appropriate bank account for your needs, we’re here to offer our expertise in order to help you make the right decisions. You may also need some information on legislation or laws that will apply to you, such as employment laws and tax liability and regulations.
Depending on the type of work you’re doing, you might also need to organise some insurance – whether that be public liability, indemnity or something else; with our first hand knowledge of your industry, we can help you to work out exactly what requirements will apply to you and your business.
As media accountants, we’re also the best people to turn to if you’re looking for help with your bookkeeping, national insurance contributions, tax returns or payroll responsibilities. Because we’ve been working with people in your sector for so long, we know all of the facts and figures like the back of our hands – and it’s our job to keep up with any changes that may affect you so that you don’t have to shoulder this responsibility yourself. We know all the best ways to legally reduce your tax payments and we can even offer business advice regarding contracts and rates of pay – we can even give you help with networking if you like!
So whether you’re a cameraman, a production company, a singer, a presenter, an entertainment agency, or even if you work in any other industry at all, you can trust our media accountants and business specialists to provide you with the most up-to-date and relevant business advice for your needs – no matter where you are on your journey.
