Accountants for TV Actors

By March 14, 2023April 13th, 2023No Comments

Whether you’re a full-time TV actor, acting is a part-time love that gives you a little bit of extra side income or you’re a family with a child actor, you’ll most likely need to file a tax return; but knowing how to effectively manage your tax affairs can be a difficult thing to navigate.

Taxes are notoriously complex, time-consuming and confusing, especially for those in the entertainment industry – but that’s where an experienced accountant can become your ultimate sidekick!


Why do TV actors need an accountant?

The majority of TV actors will be classed as self-employed, meaning that their taxes need to be submitted via a Self Assessment. This in itself is a complicated and lengthy process that can be difficult to get right, but if you’re both employed and self-employed (meaning you pay taxes through PAYE and Self Assessment) the process gets even trickier.

Hiring an accountant to sort out the financial side for you takes this stress away, leaving you to do what you do best. An experienced accountant will not only ensure that you’re compliant with your tax requirements, but they have the knowledge and expertise to help you make the most of your tax relief and ensure your money works harder (and more effectively!) for you.

This actor’s guide from Backstage provides a brilliant overview of an actor’s responsibility when it comes to paying tax and covers why you should consider hiring an accountant to manage your accounts for you.
