Alliotts’ team of specialist media accountants and tax advisors are more than just number crunchers, we have a passion for film and TV, we understand how the industry works and exactly what support you need to be successful. Over the last three years we’ve successfully applied for and secured in excess of £40m in film tax refunds on behalf of clients.

We’ve been working with the industry since the 1960s, and have built up an impressive portfolio, from cult niche productions to international Oscar winners. Most recently we’ve advised on the following projects: ‘Locked Down’, ‘OBKI’ ‘Waiting for Anya’, ‘Always, Sometimes, Never’, ‘Ronnie’s’, ‘That Good Night’,Miss Willoughby and the Haunted Bookshop’, ‘A Bird Flew In’, ‘Hey You What If?’ (BBC CBBC TV series) ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ (TV series)

We work with companies and individuals both on the screen and behind the scenes. We have the technical ability you want and experience and sector knowledge you need, but most importantly we are interested in you and what you are doing, and are as eager for you to achieve success as you are.
