The creative industry: A fast-moving phenomenon 

The increasingly international nature of the creative industries is leaving people who work within the sector in a constant state of flux. Film and TV work can make world-weary travellers out of producers, directors and everyone involved in a production, whilst the sometimes time-demanding schedules of those operating within the Art, Design and Fashion spheres can force these people to make a deep commitment to a certain type of lifestyle, with work and life overlapping instead of staying as separate entities. 

 

It’s fair to say that whether you’re snapping the stars sashaying down the catwalk at one of the world’s most fashion-forward shoots or crouched down in the freezing cold when filming on location, life within the creative sector can be fast-moving, unpredictable and anything but mundane. 

 

But, within this culture of movement and constant change, many individuals who make a livelihood out of flying in and out of different job roles on a regular basis need consistency to come to them in the form of their finances and employment rights. For those who struggle to hold down a fixed abode, it can be hard to find the time to keep on top of their income and expenditure as well as clueing themselves into the complexities of each new contract they receive. 

Why your accountant needs industry experience

As the creative sector is a dynamic industry capable of changing at the drop of a hat, it’s useful to have someone on your side with a working knowledge of the industry so that those involved in the sector can effectively plan ahead for the future, identify sources of tax relief and manage their finances accordingly. 

 

Attempting to cut through all of the accompanying jargon tied up in legal documentation can often prove frustrating and time-consuming, with the details found within hardly comparable to light reading. The often topsy-turvy nature of the creative industries can also make it incredibly easy to miss out on extra entitlements to financial relief and the necessary payment of annual tax bills.
