Accountant for Musicians

Reliable Accountancy 
Support For Musicians

There is great diversity in the music industry. The industry not only has musicians but also includes music studios, record labels, music streaming services, gig venues, and songwriters. Although the accounting needs of record labels and distributors are almost the same as that of large corporates, providing accounting support for musicians is a different ball game. They have to frequently deal with copyright issues, and sometimes they even get entangled in ugly legal battles.


At CoreAdviz, we have dedicated accountants for musicians who understand the diverse needs of their clients and offer their services accordingly. We do not limit ourselves to just managing their expenses, including those that go into professional remixing, purchase of musical instruments, recording fees, and digital distribution. Instead, we also take care of tax payments, savings, and all copyright-related legal expenses. We ensure that their tours remain profitable and tour expenses are well managed.


While working for musicians, our accountants work closely with their tour managers and promoters to ensure their overall financial well-being. So, hire us and get the much-needed professional help to have peace of mind! After all, creativity does not flow when the mind is preoccupied with mundane affairs.
