Artist Survival Guide for GST

March 21 2015
@ Run Amok Gallery

Many of us choose to be in denial when it comes to state-sanctioned taxes. From April 1st the newly introduced GST seems to be an inevitable force which none of us will be exempted; from paint brushes, framing to roti. Instead of choosing not to know, perhaps we can study how to minimise or lessen the financial stint. Join us for this GST talk, tailored made for practising artists or cultural workers alike, whose financial pattern might not fit with the norm of a conventional ‘profession’ / ‘job’.

The presentation was put together by Trevor Hampson, a collective member of Run Amok and also a formal accountant with experience in both commercial and government finances.
