Venue             200A Pentonville Road, London N1 9JP

  •       Are you working on a freelance basis or thinking about becoming self-employed?
  •       Submitted your tax return but not sure whether you are paying the right amount of tax?
  •       Would you like to know how other people in the arts and creative sector are doing? 

If you answer yes to any of the above questions, then come along to the Workshop on 11 March. Following a highly successful session in May of last year, Armando Pardo, Executive Director of the Association of Community Based Business Advice, will once again run this practical, interactive 3 hour workshop on starting and developing your practice in the arts and creative sector, organised in partnership with Creative Islington.

The session will be relevant to creative professionals from different disciplines and at different stages of development, from those wanting to work solely for their artistic practice to those wanting to develop their creative work alongside a regular job.  

Some of the issues that will be discussed include: 

                        Is self-employment the best option for me?

                        What’s involved in running a practice as a self-employed person?

                        Will I always be liable for income tax?

                        Are there any allowances available to me? 

Factsheets will be distributed and you will also have an opportunity to arrange a one-to-one, confidential consultation with a business adviser.
