ABS Entertainment Payroll and Production Accounting Services have been providing production companies and entertainment clients with full-service accounting since 1985. Different from some of the other Hollywood payroll companies who only want "large accounts", our company was founded on helping the smaller, independent filmmaker. As such, we're known as the "The Independent Filmmaker's Choice."® Many of our new clients come to us last - after they've been turned down by the "other guys".
Catering to the independent filmmaking community is what we're all about. But don't get us wrong - we don't just work on films. Our staff are experts in commercials, music videos, documentaries, internet (new media) as well as reality television.

How to keep more of your money in your pocket!
With so many productions now falling under the auspices of the various low-budget agreements, the producers of such projects are constantly looking for ways to cut expenses, keep costs to a minimum and make every penny count. Unfortunately, in an effort to do so, many producers (particularly new ones) neglect to put an amount in the budget for production accounting for their project. This can be a very costly mistake.
