Look around a music gig and the last person you expect to see is the singer’s accountant. But that’s often where you’ll find Perth-based FCPA and music specialist Kylie Thompson rocking out.

For the past 20 years, Thompson has specialised in working with people in music and the arts. With about half of her client base now in the creative industry, she has established the niche Sorrento Strategic Music and Sorrento Strategic Creative divisions within the Sorrento Strategic Accounting practice. Sorrento Strategic Music sponsors music awards and offers free initial consultations to members of major music industry bodies, including West Australian Music and APRA AMCOS.
