Accounting Services for Filmmakers and Production Companies

Accounting Services for Filmmakers and Production Companies

Georgia is now known as the Hollywood of the South. The Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act, which provides a tax credit of up to 30% 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 CPAs, we work closely with both independent filmmakers and major production companies. We help our clients in the film industry obtain the full benefits of the Georgia Film Tax Credit by making sure they meet all the needed requirements and maintain all the proper documentation.
