When you live in the spotlight, you want a tax advisor capable of standing discreetly by your side. Located in (Los Angeles, Orange County and Southern California, Manhattan Beach) since 2002, Antonious and Associates has made a name for itself in the heart of the entertainment industry. With years of experience in entertainment accounting and tax preparation, our firm has worked with numerous actors, models, agents, directors, writers, and publishers to increase profitability and decrease liability.

Some of the many tax considerations we help with that are unique or indicative of the entertainment industry include:

  • Deductible Expenses: With the new tax reform, it is important to sit down with your tax consultant as soon as possible to determine which deductions (if any) you might still be entitled to.

  • Handling of Royalties: As a potential income stream received over time, royalty payments offer a specific tax challenge that we can help you navigate and plan for over the long term.

  • Contract Negotiations: The terms of contracts can have significant tax implications. We can provide early consultation during the negotiation process, so you know which deal terms to include and where the potential red flags may lie.

  • Expense Timing: Many professionals in the entertainment business do not receive income on a regular, bi-weekly basis. We can provide planning for expense payments, so your cash flow is steady between jobs.
