Frequently Asked Questions about Bookkeeping and Accounting for Music Composers

As a music composer, you can deduct several specific expenses on your tax returns. These expenses generally relate to the production and promotion of your musical compositions, as well as the maintenance of your professional expertise. They include:

  • Costs of producing demos or promotional materials
  • Instrument and equipment purchase and maintenance costs
  • Music composition software subscription or purchase fees
  • Professional membership fees for music composer organizations
  • Music reference materials and educational resources
  • Travel expenses for performances or professional development
  • Home office expenses if you frequently compose from home
  • Legal and professional fees related to copyright, licensing, and contracts

Please consult with a tax professional familiar with the music industry to ensure the applicability and validity of these deductions to your specific situation.

Royalty payments represent a type of income received for allowing another party to use your intellectual property, such as patents, copyrighted works, franchises, or natural resources. This income is taxable and must be reported on your tax returns.

From an accounting perspective, royalty payments should be accounted for as income in the period they are received. In terms of your income statement, they will be classified under the 'Other Income' category. It's important to keep accurate and detailed records of your received royalties to ensure proper accounting and tax compliance.

Handling royalty income can be complex due to the tax considerations and potential deductions involved. It's highly recommended that individuals or companies receiving significant royalty payments seek the assistance of a bookkeeper or accountant. This professional can ensure royalties are properly recorded and accounted for, and can assist with relevant tax planning and reporting requirements.

Managing your accounting for music composing projects and contracts can be particularly complex due to variables like royalties, contract payments, and additional expenses. Thankfully, Accracy Accounting has a multifaceted solution for you.

Our bookkeepers are skilled in tracking income and expenses for creative professionals including music composers. We can keep track of your various contracts, royalty payments, project-related costs and more, so you can focus on your composing.

We’ll provide you with financial reports tailored to your needs, to help you understand your cash flow and make more informed decisions. Plus, we can even handle tax filing for you, ensuring everything is up-to-date and in order.

To get started, simply reach out to our team and we’ll guide you through the next steps. We look forward to being part of your financial journey and helping you manage your bookkeeping needs so you can continue your great work in the music world.

We understand that when our clients turn their accounting and bookkeeping services over to us, trust is paramount. We have a team of certified professionals, use proven technologies, and hold ourselves accountable every day. Yes, you can trust us with your sensitive data and to deliver accurate, timely accounting services for your business.

Absolutely. Our team members are all certified in the leading accounting systems and can quickly get your files up to date.

Don’t worry, your financial data belongs to you. Our offboarding is pretty straightforward as we transfer account ownership to you. As a bonus, there’s no stopping you from replicating the workflows we’ve created for your in-house process – in fact, we encourage it.

Savings can vary considerably depending on your current solution, but our clients tell us that it is generally between 30% and 50%.

We do not provide year-end tax filing services as we are not a CPA firm. However, if you are looking for a year-end tax accountant, we would gladly refer you to one of our partners. Having a separate bookkeeper and year-end accountant ensures additional oversight on the accuracy of your books. Your year-end tax accountant can help you review your books during tax season.

No, we are not a CPA firm. Accracy is not a public accounting firm and does not provide services that would require a license to practice public accountancy.

No. We do not offer services which fall under the jurisdiction of these organizations. We have partner organizations who can provide those services if needed by clients. A good example of such services are tax advisory or statutory filings. We have a number of non-economic partnerships with CPA firms who can help our clients with these services if needed.

Every account is set up with a Client Success Lead who will be your day-to-day contact. They’ll liaise with the rest of the team members on your account which may include an accounting manager, bookkeeper, payroll specialist, and payables specialist.
