Annual Package Prices
SOLE TRADER - NON VAT REGISTERED - SELF ASSESSMENT TAX RETURNS
£199 + VAT
We’ll produce your accounts and submit your tax return from figures that you give us, offering our best advice on your expenses, and giving an overview of your tax arrangements.
We'll advise you on how best to keep your books. We have now partnered with the A4A SansDrama app, simple to use and unbeatable value at only £2.50 + VAT per month
SOLE TRADER - VAT REGISTERED
£499 + VAT
Self-Assessment tax returns as above, plus we’ll produce and submit your VAT returns.
Everyone (more or less) has to submit VAT returns through an app these days, so we’ll advise on the best-value app for you.
The A4A SansDrama app is not designed for VAT-registered businesses, so if you are VAT-registered, we'll recommend a range of other apps for you.
£999 + VAT
We’ll produce your limited company accounts, prepare and submit your Corporation Tax return and Confirmation Statement to HMRC and Companies House, add one personal Self-Assessment tax return (almost always necessary), and submit VAT returns
If you are not already using a bookkeeping app, please consider the A4A Sans Drama app if you are not VAT-registered. It's simple to use and unbeatable value at only £2.50 + VAT per month. If however, you are VAT-registered, please let us recommend another bookkeeping app more specifically designed for your needs.
INTERNATIONAL & OVERSEAS TAXATION
NO CHARGE for Occasional Work or Income Overseas
We know that in many cases, tax for actors these days involves consideration of overseas taxation - whether you have been paid for just one or two gigs overseas, or whether large aspects of your life are international, and perhaps involve multiple destinations and properties. Whatever is happening for you, we are masters of the detail. We service clients with acting work and/or properties in the US, many EU countries, India, South Africa, Australia and others.
In the majority of cases, when you are resident in the UK, income that you have received in this way is part of the normal process of the actor's tax return, and so we deal with it for you without any fuss. If you have had occasional work or income overseas, we do not make any extra charge on our fees detailed above.
Occasionally, if you have a complex taxation position in another country, we will charge a supplementary fee to deal with it for you - but we will always quote a fixed price in advance of any work starting.
A4A SANSDRAMA APP
Only £2.50+VAT per month
We highly recommend the A4A SansDrama App to our clients. It features an easy to use intuitive design and is inexpensive. It is convenient and will allow all income and expenditure to be recorded directly into the app.
We'd love to hear from you. First and foremost we are actors' accountants and we specialise in actors' tax returns - which also, as you would expect, means that we also represent a host of other creative and cultural industry professionals, from photographers to designers to AV specialists. We cover all the necessary areas of accounts, tax and business finances for anyone working in the "Cool Britannia" sector, as well as sports industry workers, such as accounts for PTs, coaches and sports development workers in all sports from football to swimming to gymnastics to tennis.
There's sometimes more to actors' tax returns than meets the eye, and firms of accountants dealing with general businesses may fall short on the industry knowledge which actors' accountants have. We can give the very best detailed advice to those working in the creative industries. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge which comes from our years of top performance as actors' accountants and so we can get results for the specific situation that you work in. It's not just about getting actors' tax returns correct in a technical sense - but also, we intimately understand these sectors and the needs and priorities of those working in them.
If you are looking for an actors' accountant or have any needs or questions regarding tax returns for the creative industries, please call free on 08000 487626 and let's see if we can help you!

If you are a sole trader handling your own admin, we are in no doubt that the best value app currently on the market is the SansDrama app which clients will find to be uncomplicated and inexpensive. Working in partnership with them, we have developed the A4A SansDrama App which allows all expenses and income to be easily recorded and stored for only £2.50+VAT per month. Click here to sign up! Businesses which are already VAT-registered won't be able to use the app, but please speak to us about your needs and then let us recommend one of the others available. They're a bit more expensive, but many are still good to use.
“Incredible service for the price. The peace of mind I have after getting my return filed, and doubts answered, has no price" - Victor, Cambs.
“I unreservedly recommend accounting4actors – Jon is fast, effective, generous with his time and great at explaining everything. You feel like you’re in safe hands” - Clare, actor, Brighton
"Jon is our go-to person for all financial and business matters. What makes him so special is that he really understands the business of
theatre, and even more importantly he explains it to us in a way that we can’t help but understand it too. Very often with ‘experts’ you can feel disadvantaged as the explanation sounds more perplexing than the problem. I recommend him without reservation" - Annemarie, CEO, London
“We have some complex VAT needs and Jon has dealt with them better than anyone else out there” - Julian, business owner, Hampshire
“Prompt and efficient. Very reasonable price" - David, London
