Specialist accountants for creative agencies

Specialist businesses need accountants that understand their type of business, so if you are in the creative industry, Berley is accountants for creative agencies like you.

From the TV commercial that made you laugh to the advertising banner that caught your attention, creative agencies have been helping businesses to market their brands and promote their products.

London has no shortage of creative agencies – some are part of the larger international groups while others are independent agencies providing a wide range of creative services to businesses from various industries. Examples of creative agencies are design studios, advertising agencies, branding agencies, public relations agencies, and talent agencies.

Creative agencies are renowned for their fast pace operations and creativity not just in what they produce, but also in how they operate. Berley Chartered Accountants are similarly highly driven and inspired to find efficient and creative ways to help companies in the creative industry maximise billable hours and reduce the burden of their day-to-day accounting and bookkeeping, as well as looking how they can optimise tax efficiency. Size doesn’t matter either, we are equipped to cope with smaller, even start-up creative agencies or, the larger more established agencies operating in London.

Let’s not forget freelance creative professionals too. Self-employed creative professionals represented 35% of all creative jobs in 2016. As a freelance creative professional, managing your own billings and day-to-day bookkeeping can be a significant drain on your time, effort that would be better spent on ‘billable hours’. As a more ‘entrepreneurially inspired accounting firm, Berley Chartered Accountants are well placed to assist individuals in the creative industry who run their own small company or operate on a freelance contractor basis.

At Berley, our leading chartered accountants provide accountancy know-how to creative agencies and propel your business forward. From accountancy, taxes, audit, business plans to payroll, we’re here by your side and ready to take on extra responsibilities including advice on business funding and media R&D tax credits.
