“I have been a client of In The Picture since it's inception. I have always relied on their expertise to guide me through the sometimes confusing maze of income tax. The results have always been most satisfying to me financially, especially in an industry like “show business” which has so many ups and downs. Kamal and her team have always led me along the correct path. They are a great team and I'm delighted that they're on my side.

“I had been looking for a good accountant for some time and I realised very early on that I would need one that understood the pit falls and loopholes that lay in wait for the unsuspecting actor. The other problem I had was that I was a jack of all trades and tried my hand at everything e.g hosting, live shows, radio, film, TV, print, Children's Recording Artist and Writing and Producing live theatre. I didn't need an accountant, I needed a bloody Magician. Luckily for me I found one six years ago. In the Pictures. Saul and his bunch of hardy number crunching, abacus counting illusionists have been one of the secrets of my success in this industry. They are great and free with advice over the phone or on a one on one meeting. I am told what I need and when they need it by and also ways of getting more out of what I am earning. I knew that I had made that right decision when I realised that my Agency, Mark Morrissey and Associates are also on their books. I am a father of seven and I really can't afford to give anything away. That's why I joined " In the Picture". Fast simple solutions made easy.” Jay Laga'aia
