Entertainment Industry

Advisors operating in the entertainment industry need to be highly specialised because the sector’s cultural importance means it receives unique treatment by the Australian government and tax office.

Logicca has been at the centre of this industry advising big and small Australian and foreign productions at every stage of the process. We also have extensive connections and solid working relationships with many other industry specialists. Logicca’s vast experience means clients can focus on the business of being creative while we make sure they benefit from every available concession. Those without specialist experience might overlook the long list of available concessions, including:

  • Refundable tax offsets

  • Performers PAYG withholding rates
  • Temporary residents superannuation entitlements
  • GST and reverse charge agreements
  • Specific industry deductions
  • Entertainment industry double tax treaty provisions
