Why Do You Need an Accountant for Photography Business

Operating a successful photography business requires more than just capturing remarkable images. Here's why you need a dedicated photography accountant:

  1. Expertise in Photography-Specific Deductions: From completing your self-assessment return to filing them with HMRC, tax accountants for photographers ensure proper guidance to maximize your deductions, ultimately reducing your taxable income.
  2. Compliance with Accounting and Tax Regulations: Accounting and tax regulations can be complex and ever-changing. By availing accounting services for photographers, you can rest assured that your financial records are accurate, complete, and compliant with all relevant regulations.

How You Can Benefit from Having Accountants for Photographers

  1. Time-Saving and Focus on Photography: By delegating your accounting tasks to tax accountants, you can save valuable time and concentrate on what you do best: capturing stunning photos and growing your photography business. We handle the financial aspects, giving you peace of mind and more opportunities to pursue your passion.

Accounting Methods for Professional Photographers

Professional photographers must understand the different accounting methods available to manage their business finances effectively. Whether you opt for the cash basis or accrual basis, accurate tracking of income, expenses, and deductions is essential for informed decision-making. Utilizing specialized accounting software or hiring a professional accountant with expertise in the photography industry can simplify financial management.

The Cash Method

The cash method is a popular accounting choice for photographers. This method recognises income and expenses based on when payment is received and paid, respectively. It offers a clear overview of cash flow and can simplify financial management. However, it's important to consider that significant time gaps between work completion and payment may not accurately reflect.

The Accrual Method

Professional photographers commonly use the accrual method of accounting. Recording income and expenses, when earned or incurred, provides a more accurate picture of a photographer's financial situation. This method requires careful tracking of invoices, receipts, and financial documents. The accrual method and specialized accounting software can streamline bookkeeping for photographers, providing hassle-free management of their business finances.

How to Choose the Right Accounting Software for Photographers

When selecting accounting software for your photography business, consider your industry's specific requirements. Look for software that integrates with online payment platforms, project management tools, and popular platforms like Google or Facebook. Ensure the software is easy to use and offers scalability and mobility, allowing you to access your accounts from any device. Consider cloud-based accounting software options or mobile apps like Freeagent, Xero for hassle-free accounting and explore invoicing, bookkeeping, and expense tracking features. By choosing the best accounting software, you can streamline your business finances and ensure success in the long run.

What Expenses Can Photographers Claim?

As a photographer, you are eligible to claim various business expenses. Some common expenses include:

  • Camera equipment and lenses
  • Photography software and editing tools
  • Studio rent and utilities
  • Insurance premiums
  • Marketing and advertising expenses
  • Professional association fees
  • Travel and transportation costs for photoshoots
  • Website hosting and maintenance fees

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.
