Trying to work out how to make sense of VAT for artists on one side of A4 paper was a bit of a challenge. It wasn't an easy article to write and it went through several drafts.!
Last week and this weekend I've taken the opportunity to overhaul and update my webpage about VAT for Artists on this website.
Interestingly it's become one of the most visited pages on this website since it was first published last year. When I developed it, I had a notion that there was a dearth of decent information about VAT for artists - and it seems I was correct.
In compiling the information and writing the content I've taken the line that
However the fact that it's a vast and technical subject should not mean that artists and art professionals should remain in ignorance of what's involved,
Not least because getting it wrong can mean major tax bills and penalties for not recognising the need to charge VAT and not submitting both the paperwork and the payments due on time.
So the aim of the page is to provide a baseline of information and some links to the official guidance and decent advice articles which can tell you more.
