Cost reporting you can count on.
Production accounting professionals track costs and balance the books throughout production and into post on film, TV and web projects. And with budgets spread over multiple productions for various platforms, reliable production accounting has never been more crucial.
Leave all the production accounting to us – payroll accounting, hot costs, budgeting, cash flows, petty cash, p-cards setup and AP cost reporting – when you opt to use our expert production accountants on your next show, or across all your shows.
What does Production Accounting entail on a film or TV project?
- Accounts Payable (AP) – paying the bills for the production
- Payroll – dealing with all crew payroll issues AND the entertainment payroll service
- Petty cash – while this used to mean literally handing cash to crew members and tracking receipts, these days it’s more about funding purchase cards (also called p-cards in film and TV) – and of course accounting for it
- Cost reporting – this is a regular production accounting report prepared for producers and executives as requested, to get a picture of actual production costs vs the budget
Our production accountants work with either Media Services payroll or Cast & Crew, whichever you prefer. The benefit for you is that our accountants work hand-in-hand with the payroll service, and nobody knows these services or our accounting software better than our own employees! It’s like having a concierge to payroll.
Best of all, with Media Services, production accounting can either be done full-time for your film or TV project, or by a member of our in-house production accountant “pool” – a cost-effective, contact-free way to go.
