Steve has an incredible understanding of the vagaries & madness of the music business – he takes all the strain of the difficult stuff & that allows me to just be creative! His detailed knowledge of our industry has enabled me to carry on making records in the new financial landscape & I couldn’t have done it without him!
I have worked with Steve since 2008. He has become an extension of my company. His is honest, a man of real integrity, reliable, diligent, his work is outstanding and his advice invaluable. I highly recommend Steve and Sound Accounting Services
Steve worked with AngloINFO as Financial Controller (reporting directly to me) from 2006 to 2014. Although he was only working for us for two days a week, he managed to provide a complete and coherent coverage of all of our core finance requirements including managing our senior bookkeeper based in France. AngloINFO operates in 38 countries with relatively complex cross border requirements, withholding taxes and multiple currencies. Steve’s international experience proved to be very valuable when managing this complex structure. We were very pleased with the work he did for AngloINFO and enjoyed working with him.
Sound Accounting was at my side from the start of setting up my business. They provide us with brilliant service from day to day accounting to complex questions. AEP would not be able to look after its artists so well and organise projects the world over if it wouldn’t be for the bedrock that Sound Accounting provides.
Steve took over representation of my financial affairs a number of years ago. My financial accounting was earnest but very messy and disorganised so Steve not only improved my systems but has been an integral and pivotal part of the development of several new aspects of my existing business, and enabled brand new areas including a new Ltd. company set-up. Steve has always been patient, measured, transparent and above all honest in all our dealings and I cannot imagine being without having him on the team.
Sound Accounting Services have provided professional services to two of our companies since 2009, as well as undertaking personal taxation advice for the company directors. Steve has always proven to be professional and knowledgeable and is quite often contactable out of hours to provide that bit of adhoc advice. I therefore would not hesitate in recommending him and his company for all aspects of business and personal accountancy.
As a Holland based corporation, Steve is an invaluable support to help us manage our UK affiliate. It is a wonderful stress-free feeling to know that we can grow our UK company with our any concern. Steve will be there to advise us, guide our structural choices and most of all take care of all the requirements. I can’t recommend him enough.
After a couple of bad experiences with accountancy firms in the past, I have now found someone I can trust and who takes the time to explain everything in layman’s terms. Highly recommended
Steve has acted as accountant to Bella Union through our transition from fledgling indie to Music Week’s Independent Label of The Year in 2010 and 2012. He also acts for me personally and most importantly I trust Steve’s advice on these issues as it is always considered and prudent. Thankful for this.
Steve has been looking after my accounts for a number of years now. He’s efficient, organised, knowledgeable and nothing’s ever too much trouble! It’s a pleasure working with him and I feel 100% confident in recommending his services.

We have worked with Sound Accounting Services since 2010 and in that time they have become the lynchpin of our accounts team. The music business can at times suffer from lack of organisation and Steve and the guys at SAS manage to keep a very close eye on deadlines to ensure we run a tight operation. Maintaining excellent communication skills and with a wealth of knowledge about accounting & tax with a specific music slant means they have become an invaluable part of our business.
Steve McGregor is a dedicated and diligent individual who provides meticulous and thorough accounting services to the many different requirements that a multi-faceted company might need. I have found him to be a man of very high scruples who applies a faultless work ethic to make sure he gives the client everything they need.
I have worked with Steve McGregor initially as a colleague at Sony Music and then V2 Music Group and has acted as an accountant to my management and publishing companies since 2006. He is utterly reliable, scrupulous in his dealings and a valued adviser.
Steve has been a life saver. I needed help after an adverse situation with a previous accountant and he provided the escape hatch. Everyone I’ve introduced him to has had nothing but good things to report. He’s quick, diligent and very patient
