Our statements are remarkably detailed and address all revenue participants from sources worldwide. We do this monthly for half a dozen labels and a dozens of indie artists.

ENTITY FORMATION: Sometimes it is wise to have separate entities for touring, recording and music publishing. Should you form a corporation or an LLC for your touring activities and which is better for your tax situation? Are there any tax advantages that ring true in the music business for having an LLC versus an S Corp? Will a partnership suffice for your recording activities or should you incorporate? How about your music publishing company? Years of real time experience in anticipating and witnessing problems give us the wisdom to help you set things up properly from day one. There are also liability issues, which go hand in hand with the tax implications. Do yourself a favor, drop the iFn an email and don't try this at home.
