I have used Franklin James for my bookkeeping to help me with filing my self-assessment, they provided me with a free Spreadsheet template which really helped me to get everything in order. I really would recommend them to all my performer Friends. They have such a knowledge of our industry and offered me fantastic support and advice. From being an Equity member I was offered great Discounts which made them very reasonable. I can use them for advice with regards to collecting payment and having all the correct information when taking Jobs. – Fantastic company that really made a difference to me.


At Franklin James we understand the hurdles that performers have to overcome in order to run their business successfully. Paula, one of the director’s of this Company and Franklin James Entertainments has performed herself for over 14 years and has gained the experience and knowledge over the course of the years in the running of a sole trader and limited business. Sharon, also Director has vast Music Business Experience, alongside working for 3 FTSE listed companies, implementing their processes and obtaining over £120 million in over due debt. Together they have created this company to enable artists and performers within the show business industry to effectively and easily run their businesses.

  • Registering with HMRC

I recently had a problem with a singing waiter company not paying me for a job I performed at. After lots of emails and calls being ignored, I found a company called Franklin James Credit Management. They helped me massively, they were able to obtain all of the money owed to me, within a day and it only cost me about £30. Worth a mention.
