As media and entertainment business advisers, at Kingston Smith we understand that businesses and creatives within the sector are presented with many unique challenges. We understand these challenges and offer practical solutions for film, TV and theatre production companies, as well as specialist services for individual performers. Our years of experience allow us to provide an empathetic service and the best advice to our clients, marking us out from other advisers.
Our dedicated team has delivered a number of high-profile projects, including the qualification of British films and the preparation of applications to DCMS for qualification as a British film, liaising with national authorities, monitoring projects and applications to the Foreign Entertainers Unit, and the certification of production costs for films and television productions.
We are delighted that we have recently strengthened our media services offering with the acquisition of Anderson & Pennington, a highly regarded boutique firm of accountants and business advisers serving the media and entertainment sectors. This enhancement has added a strong and well known theatre practice and increased our portfolio to include clients producing major West End and Broadway shows, not for profit theatres and other businesses – ranging from individual creatives or technicians to international corporate producers.
As multi-disciplinary business advisers, we provide our clients with a complete service offering, including corporate finance, tax structuring, employment services, competitive bench-marking and efficient personal tax planning.
We enjoy close relationships with recognised trade bodies and leading publications, ensuring that we have positioned ourselves at the centre of the media and entertainment industry click here to view those we work.
