Filmmakers & Productions

Georgia is now known as the Hollywood of the South. The Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act, which provides tax credits for qualifying productions, has helped grow the filmmaking industry in the region. This tax opportunity cuts costs dramatically, making Georgia an attractive place to produce movies, television shows, commercials, and other content.

At Fricke & Associates, our CPAs work closely with independent filmmakers and major production companies. We help our clients in the film industry select and set up the proper business entity, ensure they meet all the regulatory requirements, maintain all appropriate documentation, and plan for minimizing tax liabilities.

Not-for-profit organizations

At Fricke & Associates, LLC, we understand that accounting for nonprofit organizations can be challenging. When you consider the myriad of cash flow concerns and tax ramifications, it becomes more than apparent that not-for-profit accounting differs immensely from traditional businesses. Creating and managing successful grant and fundraising programs, developing a strong and active board, and increasing overall membership are challenges that make these entities unique.


The business setup and requirements for contractors vary widely. Yet, having a practical accounting system for all successful businesses is still crucial. At Fricke & Associates, we work with independent contractors in various industries to report on financial performance. Our extensive experience allows us to preempt concerns and meet the specific accounting needs of contractors. Our services enable you to be accountable to your customers, employees, vendors, investors, and the IRS.


Your life-saving work needs to stay your primary focus in the healthcare industry. With all the regulations and paperwork you and your staff must complete to remain compliant with regulations, the medical sector can significantly benefit from the help of a qualified CPA firm like Fricke & Associates, LLC.
