ENTERTAINMENT, MUSIC & SPORTS
Based in New York, one of the world’s top sports and entertainment centers, DDK works with a variety of entertainment industry professionals and larger organizations. We serve clients in the film, TV, publishing, media and multimedia communities, among others. We offer sophisticated tax planning and business management services for professional musicians and athletes who play throughout the world.
With more than 40 theaters, New York also is home to one of the world’s largest (if not the largest) professional theater communities, with dozens of Broadway productions and national/international tours originating here. These are just some of the entertainment fields that benefit from DDK’s accounting, taxation and consulting expertise.
We provide assistance with central withholding agreements (CWAs), royalty audits, accounting for music/theatrical tours, payroll administration and cash management, as well as TV, film and music audits. We also review insurance coverage and provide local, state and international tax planning and compliance.
Clarifying Confusing Financial Situations
Almost every day we read about celebrities facing tax issues, bankruptcy and other financial crises. Sports and entertainment professionals benefit from the level of sage counsel offered by DDK’s experienced group of tax and business consultants.
We understand all the challenges performers, musicians, athletes and other entertainment industry professionals face. With multiple revenue streams – and a range of expenses – they often lose control of their financial situations or hand off responsibility to under-qualified employees or family members.
DDK understands these challenges and we enjoy the process of helping talented professionals and creative organizations gain control of their financial situations so that they can keep more of their earnings, manage their long-term financial situations and continue to thrive in the coming years.
