Entertainment Industry CPA
What is an Entertainment CPA?
An Entertainment CPA is a Certified Public Accountant who specializes in providing accounting, tax, and financial advisory services specifically for individuals and businesses within the entertainment industry.
Entertainment accountants offer a blend of traditional accounting services combined with industry-specific expertise to meet the unique financial needs and challenges of the entertainment world.
Why Do I Need an Entertainment Accountant?
If you are an entertainment professional, I strongly suggest finding an accountant with substantial entertainment industry experience.
While a traditional accountant might be able to perform the accounting and tax functions for entertainment professionals, there is great value in working with someone with in-depth knowledge of the industry.
The entertainment industry is full of nuance. A CPA that doesn’t have substantial experience in the industry may feel like a fish out of water, which could lead to subpar financial management.
Entertainment-specific topics include:
- Entertainment Business Management
- Loan-Out Corporations
- Film Production Tax Credits
- Agent & Manager Commissions
- Tour Accounting
- Multi-State Taxation
- Royalty Accounting
- Royalty Tax Treatment
- Music Catalog Sales – IRC § 1221(b)(3)
