Studio Sessions Webinars for Artists
Learn tax essentials from home!

Dates: February 13, 20 and 27, 2019, 6 – 7pm AT

This three-part online webinar series focuses on tax essentials for artists. Each one hour session will allow artists from across the country to learn practical information about preparing their taxes, from the comfort of their own home or studio. Participants can download tax software before webinar #1 and have their taxes ready to file by the end of webinar #3. Presented by Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS), the series will be taught by Chartered Professional Accountant Nora Macnee.

Understanding the Current Tax Landscape for Artists will discuss the criteria that CRA uses to determine if "a taxpayer's artistic activity...constitutes the carrying on of a business or is merely the furtherance of a hobby". Learn the steps in establishing your artist practice as a business, including registering a name with Joint Stocks, requirements leading to HST registration, online services with CRA, and hiring employees (February 13).

The Mechanics of Filing Taxes Using Online Software aims to leave you with a better understanding of how to report different types of income on your tax return. We'll use StudioTax as our free, sample software and start with the layout of a tax return and the flow of the numbers in the tax calculations. Then we'll do a deep dive into the Statement of Business Income where you'll be reporting income and expenses from your artist practice (February 20).

The Brass Tacks of Business Expenses will look in more detail at special areas of business expenses for artists. We'll explore the differences between current expenses and capital expenses, wrestle with the concept of Capital Cost Allowance (depreciation), cost of goods sold and inventory (February 27).

Individual webinars will be available to VANS members for $18, and $28 for non-members. Members can register for all three webinars for $45, and non-members can register for all three for $75. Complete descriptions and registration information can be found on the VANS Workshops page.

Let's be honest, it’s hard to get motivated to travel in winter weather to attend a workshop. This webinar series is short, jam-packed with great information and you can learn without leaving your home or studio. A recording of each webinar will be made available to participants to refer back to during tax season.
