Many arts professionals are juggling, part time jobs and generating income from a number of different sources. They often make their own tax returns and there is often ambiguity about tax liability and qualifying for artist’s tax exemptions.
With this in mind Creative Frame is organising a training session with tax advisor John Dempsey for Creative Frame members. John has worked extensively with creative businesses and individuals.
The session will cover
- Understanding tax liability
- Tax returns for self employed artists
- Applying for artists exemption
- Vat and when it applies for artists
- The importance of keeping accurate accounts
This introductory session on taxation will take the form of a lecture but will also allow plenty of time for general Q & A.
One to One Clinics
There will also be a limited number of one to one consults in the afternoon for individuals who have specific queries regarding their taxation. These 25 minute consultations will take place from 1.30pm – 5.30pm.
If you would like to attend a clinic please send an email stating what you would like addressed in detail during the clinic and also forward any relevant documents that you would like John to view in advance by Tuesday 4th September to Creative Frame: firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost of the workshop is €20 to members of Creative Frame and €40 to non-members payable at registration. If you are not yet registered with Creative Frame it’s free to do so at http://creativeframe.eu/register/. The cost of the clinics is €10.
