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 radio companies, as well as specialist services for individual talent both above and below the line. Our years of experience allow us to provide an empathetic service and the best advice to our clients, marking us out from the other advisers.
Our dedicated team has delivered a number of high-profile projects, including advice regarding the qualification of British Films and the preparation of applications to the DCMS, liaising with national authorities, monitoring projects and applications to the Foreign Entertainers Unit, as well as the certification of production costs for film, television, animation and video games productions.
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.
Many of our clients have overseas operations or work overseas for at least some part of the year, particularly in the US. We are able to draw on our experience and that of our colleagues in Morison KSi and its specialist media group to provide local advice in overseas territories to ensure you remain tax compliant in those jurisdictions, whilst giving you the peace of mind that your overall tax exposure is minimised.
We regularly host roundtable lunches aimed at the production sector with a guest speaker. These provide the opportunity to share news and discuss current issues with colleagues in the industry and are always well attended.
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.
