Financial Planning

Behind every successful artist, entertainer or high net worth entrepreneur is a business organization.  The business managers of Miller Kaplan Arase LLP work efficiently and confidentially to help those organizations operate strategically and soundly. We support our clients in leading the lives they wish, and serve as business managers to:

  • Actors and Entertainers
  • Athletes
  • High Net Worth Individuals
  • Musicians
  • Producers
  • Directors
  • Production Companies
  • Showrunners
  • Writers

Miller Kaplan’s service to the entertainment industry is more than 70 years strong.  Our engagement with clients is professionally personal, based on trust and backed by experience.  Beyond the basic accounting, tax and financial skills needed, there must be the right personality fit for a business management relationship to work.  Variety selected us for inclusion in its “Business Managers Elite Report 2012” and The Hollywood Reporter includes us among its leading “Hollywood Power Managers.”  We have earned a reputation for being straight shooters with integrity, and collaborative and committed team players.

Financial and Business Organization Management

We provide a full-range of financial and business management services to high net worth individuals.  This ranges from monthly payroll, expenses and insurance protection to automotive agreements, real estate purchases and investment opportunities.  Areas of advice and management include:

  • Personal and Business Financial Planning
  • Business Succession Planning
  • Estate, Gift and Trust Planning
  • Charitable Planning

Miller Kaplan’s experience is as wide ranging as our clients’ areas of talent and prominence.

We have gone on tour with chart-topping musicians, and supported their success by monitoring global receipts, negotiating with foreign local tax authorities, and adjusting tour operations and budgets to stay on track.  In addition, Miller Kaplan business managers support the daily financial lives of clients, including bookkeeping, accounting and family home office, royalties payments, lifestyle planning and construction agreements.

Business Management for the Digital Age

Miller Kaplan maximizes the value of our business management engagements when we guide clients in new digital-age, business models.  Backed by decades of entertainment experience, we are well schooled in managing sophisticated accounting challenges, especially within strategic tax and advisory frameworks.  We position clients in the most advantageous position to support long careers and their creative and personal interests.
