I have spent over 25 years in the music industry, making me familiar with all its many areas, from day-to-day business management and compliance work to more complex tax issues, royalty auditing and valuations. I can help you meet the demands of running a business, so that you can get on with being creative – that’s what you do best!
My experience has made me familiar with all aspects of the music industry – the many sources of royalty income (e.g. what’s the difference between PRS and PPL income?), reporting periods and the impact of the digital age. I can help you maximise income, identify all costs which you are entitled to claim and legitimately reduce tax.
I joined Silver Levene in 2007 having spent several years at boutique firm, Gelfand, Rennert, Feldman & Brown. My clients have ranged from world-famous names to unsigned artists, so I can respond to whatever your needs are; from co-approval of payments to advising on the completion of international foreign tax paperwork to investigations. I also act for a range of other entertainment clients, actors, presenters, writers and industry executives.
As well as typical accounting and tax work, I can also help with:
- Withholding tax, (avoiding) double-taxation, residence and domicile;
- Royalty audits;
- SEIS/EIS applications;
- Special reports and expert witness work; and
- Training (I have lectured to the BRIT School and BIMM)
I look forward to helping you get the best results for you, in whatever form that may take, whether that’s extracting profits from your business, or minimising income or capital taxes within the rules.
I also act for a number of charities, Barrister Chambers, am a Senior Statutory Auditor and am the firm’s deputy Money Laundering Reporting Officer.
