QUALITY ACCOUNTING & TAX ADVICE

FOR THE ART WORLD

How we can help

Artists

We act for many individuals in the creative industries and contemporary artists in particular, some who are recognisable household names.

 

Whilst we may not be able to paint, we can help you to deal with your finances in a clear, understandable way and seek to maximise your financial position.

Art Galleries & Antique Dealers

Are you fed up of defining art terminology to your financial adviser or are the complexities of accounting & tax compliance absorbing precious time from your day job?

Having worked for decades with galleries and dealers we are more than familiar with the types of transactions in your industry sector and we can help alleviate your problems, no matter how big or small.

Collectors

Do you have an art or antiques collection and are unsure of your tax obligations? We are here to advise and help structure your affairs in the most appropriate way.
 

We can deal with any reporting obligations and ensure that your enjoyment of your collection takes precedence over financial & reporting concerns.

 

Art team

Our strength lies in our people whose expertise and commitment enable us to provide a top quality pro-active tailored service.
