Entertainment Accounting & Taxation Services

Entertainment Accounting & Taxation Services is a full service accounting, taxation and business advisory firm specialising in the music industry. Our mission is to see the Australian music industry grow and flourish by assisting artists and other participants in the industry by looking after the things they would probably rather not be doing, such as their tax and accounting, letting them get on with what they are good at, their music business.

Our clients include artists from all genres of music (from country to horror metal), promoters, record labels, studios, festivals, managers and venues.

Entertainment Accounting & Taxation Services was started by Glenn Burke. Glenn commenced working in the accounting and tax profession in 1985. At the same time Glenn was mixing front-of-house for a number of rock bands. Glenn has an extensive knowledge of accounting and taxation, but also his passion for entertainment, and live music in particular, is a key driver behind Entertainment Accounting & Taxation Services.

We offer a full range of services to the entertainment industry, including, but in no way limited to:

  • Business structuring advice
  • Tax planning and advice
  • Business planning
  • Preparation of income tax returns and activity statements
  • Preparation of annual financial statements
  • Bookkeeping and management accounting
  • Payroll processing
  • Grant and funding identification and applications
  • Budgeting and accounting for tours, events and festivals
  • Financial planning; and
  • Cash flow management

We offer a cost-free and obligation-free first meeting where we sit with you to discuss your needs. From this initial discussion we will put together a package that is customised to your requirements. We will also give you a fixed fee, so you will know exactly what you will get and how much it will cost.
