Tax Time for Creatives

As creatives who almost always have second jobs or hustle income, tax time can be daunting. In this session with an expert accountant, we'll unpack deductions, substantiation, GST and so much more!

Join Matt from Creative Crunchers and arm yourself with the knowledge you need to ensure you're making the most of your returns every year. Whether you already have an accountant, you're gearing up to publish, or looking to be paid for your very first piece of writing, get the ins and outs on deductions, GST, claims, and all the taxation bits and pieces related to writers and other creatives, to ensure you get the most from your return.

You may even be able to claim this workshop on this year's return!


Participants will learn about:

  • Substantiation – what you need to keep and systems to help you
  • Deductions – train your brain to be always thinking tax
  • Your relationship with GST
  • Your relationship with income averaging
  • Structures – the real truth about operating as a company


Suitable for creatives of all backgrounds.
