If you are looking for an accountant and adviser who gets your business – whether you’re in production, post-production, editorial, live action or animation – look no further. Our specialist TV and film division serves the world of TV commercials, TV programmes and film. Our client black book is bursting with companies and individuals operating both behind and in front of the camera.
We act for and sponsor the main industry awards shows, such as the APA, British Arrows and Creative Circle. David Reviews regularly joins forces with us to keep you abreast of the latest news and views from ad land, including interviews with well-known directors and producers. We are also involved with the TV industry news review TellyCast, where we regularly discuss the key issues affecting the sector.
Need advice on qualifying British films? Or a point of liaison with national authorities? Or help with certifying production costs for your film or TV productions? Or assistance with preparing applications for tax credits to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport? Or guidance in making a reduced rate application to the foreign entertainers unit? Talk to us.
We are affiliated to all the major UK trade bodies. They consult us on a daily basis and engage us to run industry-focused seminars and webinars. We are a board member and treasurer for Women in Film and TV, Time’s Up UK and Animated Women. Broadcast and Televisual regularly publish our articles on tax initiatives, funding arrangements and business strategy in the current environment. For the production sector, we host regular roundtable events (physical or virtual, as appropriate) with a guest speaker, which are invariably oversubscribed.
Many of you have overseas operations or work overseas for at least some part of the year, particularly in the US. With our LA counterpart Kingston Smith Barlevi, we are the only firm with a truly bilateral capability – whether you’re going to the US from the UK or coming in the other direction.
Additionally, you can draw on the expertise of our fellow members in the wider Moore Global Network for any tax advice in territories across the globe. We lead the very active Moore Media Group, which combines media expertise from 32 offices around the world into one global knowledge forum.
