What others are saying

  • I can't recommend Above the Line Accounting highly enough. Matthew has been flexible, helpful, endlessly patient with my questions, and has guided me through the complicated process of applying for and getting the producer offset, as well as more day to day issues of setting up a film accounting system. Why would you choose anyone else?

    Jay Rutovitz - Film Producer, Girls Own Pictures
  • "Matt Carter and his team have been looking after my business and personal finances and taxation for over 10 years. His professionalism, service and dedication to me as a client and his in depth knowledge of my business is what keeps me coming back, and why I have no hesitation to recommend him to my colleagues. I am always made to feel welcome and appreciated, and he always has the answers to my questions. I look forward to another 10 years and many more films with Above the Line Accounting."

    Annmaree J Bell - Producer, Azure Productions
  • Matt Carter from Above The Line Accounting has taken care of all my accounting needs for the past 10 years. The tasks range from personal tax, company tax, company structure, rebate applications and currently as production accountant on my feature film – helping me through with financing requirements such as finance plans, cashflow charts and budget to the day to day accounting such as payroll, cost reports, payments and investor requirements. I can’t recommend Matt highly enough.

    Joe Weatherstone - Feature Film and Television Producer, Hypergiant Films
  • Above The Line Accounting worked tirelessly with my team to collect and organise the data, then offered solid, user-friendly advice which placed our accounts in the best possible position. I was amazed at the efficiency with which Above The Line Accounting accomplished this large task.
