We are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s AIM conference and look forward to meeting you all in Edinburgh. With more than 3,500 specialists across 165 offices in the UK, we offer a personal, local approach to accounting and business advisory services. If you are looking for peace of mind and expert support, we are ready to help. Culture is one of the most diverse, dynamic, and important sectors in the UK economy. It is also one of the toughest and most unpredictable. We assist museums of all sizes as well as galleries, artists, actors, musicians, theatres, producers and production companies. We provide strategic advice on business structuring and tax planning, together with day-to-day support on VAT and tax compliance. Tax can be confusing and is often overlooked, however it is one of our most accessed services by the Culture sector. Our specialist team of tax consultants work with museums to provide assurance and proactive support on VAT, MGETR, Employment tax, R&D tax credits and corporation tax. We always consider the wider tax position and make sure that our assistance is understandable and practical.
