THE MUSIC CPA
The Music CPA offers full service accounting, tax preparation, tax compliance and consulting services to recording artists, musicians and bands, recording labels and other music industry businesses. We are accountants, who are also musicians, helping entertainers with entertainment industry tax, royalty, and accounting issues.
We work with the entertainers directly or with their agents, attorneys and personal managers. Our focus is on tax and accounting issues, royalties, recoupable expenses, tour budgeting, asset depreciation, contracts, program budgeting and much more.
The Music CPA provides entertainers an independent outlet to help manage or review finances. The difference between The Music CPA and other professionals in the industry is we do not share in a percentage of your entertainment revenues. This independence provides an additional trusted outlet to assess financial decisions. We are not agents, attorneys, or personal managers. Our entertainment niche provides the knowledge to manage financial needs and bring professional resources to the table for each growth phase of your career.
We do not teach entertainers how to become business executives. Our focus is to teach entertainers basic financial principles to protect their interests and to identify financial opportunities.
Our clients range from individuals who are part-time entertainers to seasoned industry professionals who have carved out successful careers. Their needs vary from tax return preparation to consulting or audit work related to their recording label expenses and royalty income. Please refer to the Taxes and Royalty sections of our website for more details.
