Sports and Entertainment

Success in the Sports and Entertainment industry extends well beyond ticket sales, ratings, wins and losses.

A successful Sports and Entertainment business delivers quality venues, unquestionable talent, and superior entertainment – but that’s not the whole story. Financial statement reporting, cash flow projections, beneficial loan agreements, investor relations and a long-term tax strategy, among other financial considerations, are all parts of the success equation. To maintain a competitive edge, Sports and Entertainment owners need to work with an experienced provider who understands their business and its unique accounting and tax needs.

H2R CPA works with Sports and Entertainment enterprises in several states to provide tax, audit, accounting and financial guidance that keeps the performances going. Our services extend beyond typical compliance solutions that most accounting firms offer to those that maintain healthy cash flow and profitability. We have experience working with owners of baseball, football, hockey and lacrosse teams. Take advantage of our years of experience in the industry to ensure your team, and business, is well positioned for the future.
