The accounting and advisory services that Cascade Pictures Ltd offer are as follows:-

Film and TV Financial Modelling Services
  • Acquisition of film modelling for distribution. The models are built by reviewing comparative titles for box office, DVD and TV revenues and assessing P and A expenditure requirements in the current market place thus valuing the title based on the first income cycle to assess a fair and reasonable minimum guarantee to be offered.
  • Film library and individual title valuations. Valuations for library acquisitions are carried out by review of contracts, performance to date and forecasting of future revenues and associated costs. The discounted valuation is calculated by way of assessing first and second cycle sales value on title by title basis.

Accounting Services
  • The preparation and submission of management accounts, including commentary and key performance indicators
  • Compilation of annual budgets and submission of rolling cash flows
  • Finalize annual statutory accounts and liaise with external auditors
  • Calculate, review and publish 3rd party royalty statements to licensors
  • Set P and A budgets and update actual costs and commitments for each specific title
