Creative Industries Services

Financial experts for creative businesses and individuals

Creative Industries Services Overview

Creative Industries is one of the most financially and commercially complex areas of business. It’s the original gig economy; engagements can be short term, it can be feast or famine with long stretches without a gig and then an overwhelming demand to be on the other side of the world for an indefinite period.

Whichever section of the creative world you occupy, your life will be deadline-driven, fast, furious and demanding. It could be so easy to lose sight of the basics, to be taken advantage of and to lose track of the essentials of tax planning. Our Creatives team understands that tax planning isn’t necessarily high up your agenda, so we cut through the financial complexity to enable you to concentrate on what you do best.

In a nutshell, Old Mill provides creative industries with financial expertise for both businesses and individuals.

Old Mill works with clients in the creative sector to help them to access reliefs by understanding your business, determining eligibility, identifying qualifying expenditure and preparing and submitting the necessary documentation – taking the pain out of the process for you and allowing you to maintain focus on your business. A successful Research and Development (R&D) application could offer a valuable cash injection to your business, even if your business is not yet at the point where you are paying corporation tax.

The key areas where we can provide support are;

  • film production companies producing films (whether or not the films are intended for cinema release)
  • television production companies producing relevant animation, children’s or high-end television programmes
  • video games producers
  • theatrical and orchestral production companies
  • museums and galleries which claim relief for an exhibition

To chat to us about your plans, get in touch with us or make an appointment with one of our creative industry specialists at one of our offices in Exeter, Wells, Melksham an Yeovil.

Old Mill has charm, integrity, professionalism and great service.
