UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants


Accountants for Musicians, Actors & Performers

We love our creative clients, they bring a whirlwind of vibrancy and theatre to our world! Our clients are performers and entertainers of all kinds.


  • Musicians
  • Singers
  • Dancers
  • Actors
  • Magicians
  • Theatres and music venues

You already know that you are unique, but it takes a specialist musician / entertainer accountant to understand the particular tax aspects that can be the difference between you being on the bread-line and leading the chorus-line.

Did you know for example that you can claim allowances that other self-employed individuals cannot?

Allowable expenses

You may be able to claim the following costs as expenses if you are a self-employed performer:

  • Costumes and performance shoes purchase and hire
  • Cosmetic dentistry / surgery
  • Professional fees including agents and booking fees, accountants fees
  • Scripts and sheet music
  • Portfolio items eg photos, sound and video recordings

And also capital expenditure allowances for longer-lasting tangible items such as:

  • Office equipment
  • Musical instruments

And a whole host of others, if you know who to ask.

Accountancy Services for the Performing Arts

If you’re looking for someone to help with the black, white and grey, we get really excited about numbers and tax, leaving you free to be flamboyant and creative. Our entertainer clients use us for the accountancy services below, among other more unusual requests.
