Sports & Entertainment Sector Accounting

World class accounting from award winning chartered accountants you can trust

Accounting For The Sports & Entertainment Sector

The sport and entertainment sector covers a wide range of businesses and individuals. Athletes and professionals in a wide variety of sports, artists, performers, and music producers are just a few of the groups we provide accounting support for.

Yet despite the revered figures making their arguably expensive names in this industry, both the future uncertainty regarding employment and the shifting nature of entertainment trends can be out of a business’ control, making financial insecurity a common threat to those operating in this sector. Unfortunately, personal talent doesn’t always forge a secure business.

That’s where we come in – our wide breadth of experience in this sector, and our polished practice of operating in its niches serves to support your business.

We Have Open Minds

Despite the wide stretch of businesses present in the sport and entertainment sector, we can utilise our sector-specific accounting knowledge to guarantee the financial strength and success that your business deserves. Here at Nordens, support centres around royalty accounting and disputes, tour accounting, wealth preservation, and assistance with tax. Nowhere is stability as important as in such a dynamic sector that is accompanied by a high turnover of respective trends. Whether your career is taking its first steps, or its ready for a touchdown, we can provide the accounting.

In rather more specific terms, we can provide support to businesses representing the fields of film, television, music, video games, fashion, photography, theatre, sports, marketing, and PR. If any of these niches relate to your business, we can provide the specialised service it requires to reach success. Each and every side to the entertainment industry has been – and will continue to be – covered by the Nordens team.

Sports & Entertainment Accounting With Nordens

Despite the wide array of accounting support we can provide here at Nordens, we have an even greater stretch of services on offer that can fit your sports and entertainment-based financial needs. Such services include: tax returns (both corporate and personal) and tax planning which is specialised for high-earning individuals and businesses; annual accounts and audits; VAT compliance; royalty accounting and solving the disputes regarding it; wealth preservation and asset protection (this is key for high-earning individuals to maintain financial security); pension and retirement planning (a vital method of protecting the financial integrity in such a fast-moving sector); tour accounting; and advice on business structures.

We Think Long Term

We Understand The Sports & Entertainment Sector

At Nordens, we pride ourselves on our accounting knowledge and know-how. But before we even consider running the numbers regarding your business, we consider the specific sector you’re operating in, and thus your individual business’ array of needs. We don’t just bare in mind the obstacles you might encounter, but we are also prepared to determine and solve the problems you might come across. This can include supporting the retirement plans of specific individuals in order to move past the uncertainty upheld by these industries, and considering your tax planning in depth (a hurdle often faced in this sector).

Our Sports & Entertainment Sector Experience

Here at Nordens, our accounting knowledge – and the experience that goes hand-in-hand with it – is at the forefront of everything we do. Yet aside from the awards that prove this and the successful businesses showcasing this, it’s our sector-specific experience that puts the proof in the pudding. This includes our specific experience with image rights, endorsements, television contracts, and merchandising. On top of this, the variety of professionals we have provided our accounting services to further confirms this. Just like your business, we’re constantly keeping up with the shifts and shakes of this sector; it’s safe to say that we never stop learning.

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
