Lincoln accountants buy media specialists

Lincoln-based Streets Chartered Accountants acquired London and Brighton-based entertainment specialist accountancy firm Mark Carr & Co, which will become part of the Streets Media Group.

The acquisition follows the successful development of Streets dedicated media and entertainment offering over recent years – a move, which from its offices in London and Manchester, has seen the firm become a leading and widely acclaimed provider of tax and financial advisory services to all those in the sector, from freelancers and agents to film producers and production houses.

Paul Tutin, Chairman and Managing Partner at Streets Chartered Accountants, said: “We have been very keen to develop our media and entertainment specialism and to build on the opportunities offered by a vibrant and dynamic sector of the economy.

“It has been important to ensure growth to maintain and build on our expertise in the sector. We have also been keen to expand our provision in London and the surrounding area.

“The opportunity for Mark Carr & Co, with offices in London and Brighton, to become part of our media offering was and is particularly fortuitous.

“Since the decision to focus on developing a practice solely for clients in the entertainment industry, Mark Carr has established Mark Carr & Co as one of the few dedicated sector advisory firms. It is therefore an ideal adjunct to the Streets Media Group which includes Streets Media Chartered Accountants, with its offices in Mayfair, London and close to MediaCity in Manchester.”

Mark Carr, along with his team based in London and Brighton will continue to look after their entertainment sector clients, building on their reputation for acting for entertainers.
