Hi everyone, I have been researching and reading everything I can get my hands on about the business side of music production writing (read your e-book Art, very informative thank you.) and I haven’t been able to find any info on if production writers are registering themselves as businesses.
Is anybody here registered as a sole proprietor and running everything you’re doing as a legit business or just going at it freelance?
Thanks for all the info you all have passed through this site. It has been my go to since I’ve started.
Hey Finn, I’m very new to this and have done quite a bit of research. I’m primarily a video editor as my full time job, but went freelance a year ago. I’m probably going to create an LLC or S-Corp depending on what my accountant advises when it’s worth doing one of those. And from what I’ve been told by a few accountants, it’s not worth bothering until you are making 80 or 100k from your ??? It could be music production or some other freelance gig – website designing. So if you are like me and making pennies from your music, I wouldn’t worry about it.
