Why Do Entertainers Need Specialist Accountants for Actors?

An accountant can offer valuable advice on investments, retirement planning, tax planning and making informed decisions about managing their wealth and securing their financial well-being.

Actors often have diverse income streams, including salary, royalties, residuals, endorsement deals, and more. An accountant can ensure that all revenue streams are accurately accounted for, providing a clear picture of an actor's financial health.

My only regret is that I didn't move before!

I founded my company and did first year of accounting with a larger provider, that was cheaper and using their own accountancy software and not FreeAgent, and it's been a disaster. Not real interaction or customer care, and their software was a nightmare. I found about GoForma, their more 1-1 customer oriented approach, and FreeAgent that I found immediately much easier to use, and my only regret is that I didn't move before! Very welcoming, patient explaining everything, it just feels like they care. FreeAgent is amazing. Very happy to be with GoForma now that my company is starting gearing up.
