Why we only work with creative businesses
Creative businesses are built on vision, passion and ideas.
The things of dreams – who wouldn’t want to work with people like that?
We love the creatives sectors and could see that in many cases they were not getting what they needed from their accountant.
So… we decided to focus in and bridge that gap. Working with the creative industries, we offer solutions that are easy to digest, informal and built into however you run your business. Simple!
Specialist knowledge for creative industries. You know it. We know it; creative industries are different. Each sector has its own quirks, which require tailored accountancy support – that's where we come in.
Each sector has its quirks, some have specific tax benefits, or reporting regulations and structure… But more than that, creativity, passion and innovation mean specific pressures are placed on these individuals and their businesses.
We understand these pressure points and have found ways to both support the individual and the business to grow, without the burden of the business process limiting the creativity.
Many creatives also find the finance side of the business alien, intimidating, or just boring. Either way, we can help manage this. We help our clients in the creative industries feel comfortable with the figures, simplify complex financial concepts, and show them how their passion can enhance their financial circumstances.
We are always pleased to talk and discuss on a no obligation basis how we might assist.
