Fricke & Associates: Your Film & TV Accounting Experts 

Published by Doug Chaffins at July 1, 2022

About Us

Did you know that the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act provides filmmakers and production studios with up to a 30 percent tax credit on qualifying productions? Not only is Fricke & Associates an ardent supporter of the growth of the film industry in the state of Georgia, but we are also a public accounting firm uniquely qualified to work with members of the film industry. We have dedicated CPAs who have years of experience working with both independent filmmakers and major studios in properly setting up business entities, managing financial records and minimizing tax liabilities.

We are diverse

With over 450 clients from the film industry, we have the expertise to work with people of various types of filmmaking backgrounds. We oversee all aspects of the film industry and work with both production companies and individual actors. We also work with film distributors, editing and post-production studios, talent agencies, casting companies, and any type of guild or union.

We know the industry and its laws and regulations

We understand that production companies and studios have to deal with things like irregular cash flows and large payrolls to short-term laborers. We know the laws and regulations inside and out and are here to guide you through the process.

We understand the job

Because we work with so many filmmakers, producers and actors, we understand your schedule, process and the challenges you face on a daily basis. We sit down with you to plan ahead as much as we can so you can operate in the most financially beneficial way. 

We file in multiple states

As a member of the film industry, we understand you travel often and may work across multiple states throughout the year. Though we are a Georgia-based accounting firm, we’ll help you file your tax returns in any state you worked in.

We maximize your tax deductions

Tax planning is essential for independent filmmakers and studios. When you let us prepare your tax returns, you can be assured that we have combed through every aspect of your business and film project and identified every possible tax deduction. We are tax professionals and our team at our Peachtree Corners and Marietta offices stand ready to work with you.

Behind the success of every film is a certified public accountant who works behind the scenes and ensures all the financial aspects of production run smoothly. Based out of Peachtree Corners & Marietta, GA, Fricke & Associates provides accounting for the film industry. 

Georgia is a great place to film your next production. We are always excited to meet and work with members of the film industry. Give us a call today so we can formulate a plan together.
