Show 05: PNL Essentials – Book Keeping, Accountancy & Tax

28 Feb

This weeks show is the first of a new type of feature that we’ll be running every now and then called ‘PNL Essentials’. The purpose of these shows will be for me to just sit down with a service professional that we deal with from time to time in the photo industry to give you guys a good basic grounding on their services and to give YOU GUYS the chance to tweet in any questions you may have that are currently on your mind.

In the future I’ll be chatting with Wedding Planners, Web Designers, Marketers, Album Designers, Album Suppliers etc etc to give you guys good basic knowledge of the services they provide in the industry. Basically, its the kind of resource that I would have given my right arm for when starting out as many are not regularly published in the photographic media.

So, this week we’ll be bringing the sexy back to all things book keeping, accounting and Tax related! Its one of those areas which send most photographers running at the first mention, so we’re going to be breaking it down for you and giving you some awesome content to take away.

We are going to be joined by Keith Mortimer, a qualified accountant and partner of Kathryn Andrews over at Willow Tree Photography in Hampshire, UK.

As always, I’d love to hear your comments and feedback AND feel free to carry on the conversation! You can do all this by using the comments area below. Enjoy! RD

    Sexy back! I like it! ;o) I can’t tell you how brilliant it is to have my own personal accountant at home… Keith has been able to help me during the first year of my business and I’m not sure what I would have done without his wealth of knowledge and support. I’m creative…. Accounts just aren’t my thing. So for one night only I’m lending Keith to you so he can share his wisdom and expert advice. :o)
