Accountants for creatives

Enabling the creative spark

Alchemy’s approach to accounting for creative professionals produces the kind of calm and clarity you need to do your best work.

We work with agencies, studios and production companies, as well as with individual creative freelancers and contractors.

Our services include bookkeeping and accounts management – a particular challenge in a world of one-off jobs and complex client billing that defines many creative businesses – to put you in control of your cashflow.

We also offer advice on tax planning, from company structure to creative industry and research and development tax relief.

And our recommendations for cloud accounting software work brilliantly for those who work on projects on the move, providing instant access to reports and a quick way to record invoices and expenses.

We work with…

  • Designers
  • Photographers
  • Filmmakers
  • Animators
  • Illustrators
  • Visual effects houses
  • Video editors
  • Publishers
  • Game developers
