We are fortunate to have clients who are a pleasure to work with. Here are some kind words some of our clients have written about us:
Would recommend to other filmmakers!
Electra Frost Accounting has been incredibly helpful with managing our tax returns. As a couple of filmmakers in Brisbane, it has been wonderful to have an accountant who understands and knows what options are available to us to best sustain our business. We discovered Electra a couple of years ago through a creative business course and we already recommend her accounting services to other people who would certainly appreciate it. Thank you Electra!
An important part of my business
Electra and I go back to 2013, when I made the decision to jump off the corporate ladder and start up a copywriting agency. Electra explained business structures and set-up my company with ASIC. Since those early days, Electra and her team have become an important part of my business. Whether it is providing advice on taxation, superannuation, GST and expenses to completing my annual company and personal tax returns. I’m now less terrible with numbers!
As an added bonus, Electra specialises in creative industries (which I am in) so understands the type of work I undertake. Whenever a fellow writer or creative type ask me for an accounting recommendation I always say, Electra Frost!
The estimable Electra
Electra has been my accountant since the early 2000’s, that in itself speaks volumes for the service she and her team provide, and for the longevity of her career in this niche market of arts tax law and accounting. Electra has long been familiar with my arts business and this has enabled her to do the very best by me over the years, her intricate knowledge of the Australian tax law has given me great comfort in knowing I will always get the fattest tax return available, with the minimum of pain and suffering. I’ve recommended Electra to many, many of my friends and they too have praised her speed and efficiency with their various businesses.
In highly capable hands for 17 years
About 17 years ago I was looking for an accountant who would understand my employment situation. I worked across a range of different jobs, body painting for corporate events, performing for burlesque shows and circus events, designing costumes, selling paintings, working in an art shop, some of it overseas. It was hard to describe to my flatmates what I did for a living – let alone an accountant!
A musician and friend recommended me to Barry at Entart (Entertainment/Arts) in Bondi Junction, Sydney and it was there that I first met Electra who was in his employ. As soon as I worked with Electra I realised I was in highly capable hands. She really understood what it was I did for a living and how that translated into the world of tax and accounting.
When Electra decided to start her own practice in Sydney I followed her there, and now on to Queensland. Over the years my employment and my artistic practice have changed and developed, and become infinitely more complex. Electra has been there to cast a light into areas unknown to me and I have always been impressed with her intricate knowledge and her deep engagement within her chosen field.
Whether it’s mortgage repayments and negative-gearing, calculating HELP debt repayments or expense claims for international per diems, Electra knows exactly what to do. Additionally, she is highly ethical and strategic when it comes to assisting her clients, she thinks long-term.
I have recommended many creative people working previously with standard accountants to Electra and those that have employed her services have been deeply thankful. Occasionally people have asked me about the costs associated with having a specialist accountant deal with my tax, but they are always negligible in perspective of what I have gained, both financially and professionally .
I now conduct all my tax dealings online via email and Skype with Electra and I couldn’t be happier. There’s no accountant I would ever more highly recommend to an artist.
