Thursday 13th June
5:30pm - 7:30pm




Presented in conjunction with AMIN: QMusic, MusicNSW, Music Victoria, MusicSA, MusicNT WAM, Music Tasmania and MusicACT.
Managing your finances is an important part of any successful music project.

If you’re a musician, chances are you’ll need a basic understanding of ABNs, superannuation and how to fill out a tax return for your business.
We’ll be joined by Emma Brophy (Senior Client Manager, Generate Tax and Accounting Consultants) for an overview on what you need to know when declaring your APRA AMCOS royalties at tax time. This webinar will mark the launch of the ‘Tax Pack’ for musicians, providing you with resources to use each financial year (check it out here!). Key topics:

  • Deductions: what you can claim
  • Super: how to claim a tax deduction for super you pay yourself
  • How to find your APRA income
  • Special professional income averaging
  • Paying income tax in advance (PAYG instalments)
  • Foreign income (withholding tax)

Includes a Q&A session.
Please note: the information being presented is general. Questions relating to your specific earnings or tax return cannot be addressed.
