Not all problems are approached the same but from our previous experience you can see we save our clients money, time and allow them to concentrate on the things they enjoy the most, worry free!
A client of DWA UK suffered in excess of $250,000 personal withholding tax in the US. Our expert knowledge ensured we obtained a full rebate of the tax, but at the same time we mitigated taxes in the UK by using a limited company. This shouldn’t be possible – but we did it. We have a very happy client, with a very healthy bank account!
When a client of DWA UK signed bumper record and publishing deals, everything accelerated and all of a sudden the artist was also expected to be a businessman. We guided our client through the start-up process, from setting up a limited company to opening vendor accounts with suppliers, registering for VAT and payroll, opening bank accounts and at the same time we started running the day to day business and handling the complexities of accounting and global taxes. That’s why we’re called business managers and not just plain old accountants.
Making music is not just a passion. For our clients it’s also a business. We help clients register for PRS and PPL and have recently introduced an up and coming artist to the notion of royalty payments for live performances. We keep in regular contact with the artist and ensure that all live performances and set lists are reported to PRS. This ensures monthly royalty payments include the income you deserve for the music you have made.
Following an album launch, one of our clients commenced a global tour and we made it our mission to ensure that they returned with as much money as possible. We did this by managing the tax mitigation process and working with local promoters to reduce withheld taxes. Our expert knowledge and experience allowed us to achieve significant tax reductions, and give our client peace of mind that the tour was made as profitable as possible.

"Withholding tax has always been a thorn in the side of touring international artists and something I personally thought was impossible to do anything about and baffled my local accountants...this was until I was introduced to the team at DWA whom understand all aspects of international accounting and claim back tax where due. My company as a whole has never been in such a great shape due to all angles of their care and advice."
