Tax & Accounting for Freelance Artists

We’ll lift the burden of taxes and accounting off you and your team as you focus on your audience to deliver great visceral experiences.

Here’s what artists we support say.

My understanding of Canadian income taxes with respect to my music business has been clarified by Darren and his team’s process of explaining complex tax concepts in an easy-to-understand method.

When I began working with Darren and his team, I had no idea about anything related to taxes. However, after each meeting, I came to understand how interesting taxes could be. And yet I still trust and leave the heavy lifting to DW & Associates, Chartered Professional Accountants because they are knowledgeable and get the job done on time.

DW & Associates was pivotal for me in helping me bridge the gap between personal taxes, business taxes, and the process of incorporating my music business. I could not be more satisfied with the help of Darren and his team. I have hired DW & Associates, Chartered Professional Accountants to help my company with business taxes, and have only positive things to say about their services.
