A presentation and Q&A on personal tax accounting for independent filmmakers, by Sherrill Sirrs Inc.

This two-hour workshop will cover essential details of record-keeping, form filling and smart accountancy for DIY accounts, bookkeepers and accountants, describing important differences in approach. A 30 minute presentation will be followed by in-depth Q&A.

Topics covered will include:

  • Accountancy Status
  • GST/PST
  • Keeping Records & Forms
  • Bookkeepers vs Accountants
  • Project Accounting


This workshop will be especially useful for artists working on a project basis, but applicable to accountancy for all practitioners paid as self-employed proprietors.

This workshop does not cover accounting for incorporated businesses. As the tax cycle for such organizations is flexible, a separate workshop will be arranged later in the year for this purpose.


Sherrill Sirrs, CMA (CPA, CMA).
Finding a niche market and possessing a love for the entertainment industry, Sherrill began working with independent filmmakers, media artists and television producers in 1997. Her practice is made up of primarily film-related clients and with dozens of film credits to her name, you can pretty much ask her anything about film financing and production accounting.
