Trusted Social Media Influencer Accountants

Accounting for Social Media Influencers, Content Creators & Online Entrepreneurs

It takes a certain personality to become a social media star, whether that be a content creator on TikTok, an Instagram influencer or you’re documenting your life on YouTube.

Social media has always had the capacity to drive trends within society. The growth of content creators across social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, the continued rise of the YouTuber over the last 10 years, and more recently, the explosion of the TikTok star, has turned this sector into a multi-billion-pound industry.

This means there are thousands of social media influencers who have propelled themselves into the spotlight, but need support on how to manage the finances they’re now earning.

At Gorilla Accounting, we are experts in accounting for social media influencers, content creators and online entrepreneurs. We understand the complexities of earning through multiple streams of income and can help you navigate your way through anything you’re uncertain of.

Looking for an accountant for influencers?

With more and more entrepreneurs of all ages and backgrounds going viral across these platforms, it can be tricky to navigate earning an extra income that has developed from a hobby, often alongside a salary from a full or part time job. You may be just starting out in your career, doing social media full-time from the offset, and need support with your tax payments as you head towards getting verified on TikTok.

Either way, there is no ‘how to become an influencer overnight’ handbook that works for everyone. It takes a lot of hard work, thick skin and fresh ideas to succeed. Having the support around you from management and a social media accountant can also pave the way to ensuring your success online is long term.

Accounting & Social Media

If you’re looking for an influencer accountant who can help you with the financial side of success, Gorilla Accounting can help. There are not many designated accountants for social media influencers out there – especially those with the amount of knowledge and experience you will get from an accountant at Gorilla Accounting.

Accounting for social media influencers is a specialist area. An accountant for influencers needs to keep on top of the most recent trends and the different areas in which social media influencers and content creators can earn money, from Creator Funds to Brand deals and everything in between. At Gorilla, you will find everything you need in a social media influencer accountant as we already work with an abundance of creators in your area.

Whether your day-in-the-life videos go viral, you’re gaming online, creating fashion reels, posting skits on TikTok or you’re recommending beauty products on YouTube, we can help you navigate the weird and wonderful world of becoming an influencer, leaving you with more time to be creating content.

Social media accountants and making money online

There are so many different ways to make money on social media now, and different opportunities are presented based on engagement, followers, and the content you may be creating.

Whether you’re earning an income from monetising your videos or posts, through brand deals, sponsorships, affiliates or subscriptions, you can earn £1,000 per tax year before having to worry. You can earn £1,000 tax free as the ‘trading allowance’. There is a lot of money to be made on social media, so you may find you earn that quickly before you need to start paying tax on your earnings, with no idea of your tax obligations going forward.

If you will be earning more than £1,000 in a tax year, you will need to ensure that any taxable income and expenses are tracked. An influencer tax accountant can help you track your incomings and outgoings and can ensure you are HMRC compliant yet tax efficient when it comes to your take home pay, giving you the peace of mind that you need.

Accountants for social media influencers can also make sure you’re paying the right amount of tax if you’re working full-time alongside content creation, if doing social media is your ‘side hustle’.

Benefits of joining Gorilla Accounting as a content creator

The number of entrepreneurs with social influence has risen remarkably over the last 5 years, especially since the growing number of TikTok influencers have become more and more popular, many of which grew followers over lockdown.

With brand deals to manage and content to create, it can be tricky to keep on top of your finances, especially when you have multiple income streams. It’s even trickier if you’ve never run your own business before, and this is all new waters for you.
