Mark Carr, Director at Mark Carr & Co which is part of the Streets Media Group, specialist entertainment accountants and tax advisers, is concerned about future work opportunities for UK actors and performers post Brexit.

This follows coverage in The Stage last week that a German Theatre has indicated that post Brexit it sees increased bureacracy around engaging British actors and performers who do not have an EU Passport. In an attempt to address the issue around the protracted process of engaging British actors, the Hamburg based English Theatre is considering developing casting links with agents etc in Ireland. This is an approach which provides a potential pool of English Speakers with EU passports. 

Commenting on the situation, Mark Carr said: “We look after a growing number of Irish actors and performers and it seems that whilst they have not fully considered the financial implications of working overseas, they do recognise the potential opportunity this situation presents.
