The Course: Business Fundamentals for Musicians
The course deals with the essential know-how which musicians should have when they work freelance.
Topics include which type of company to choose, social security for artists, and the
collecting body that upholds the copyright interest of performing artists (GVL). A major focus will be on the relevant tax-laws for musicians e.g. value added tax and the taxation of foreign musicians. The aim is to provide the musician with fundamental business knowledge. This is needed to avoid most
severe traps of freelance work and hence to save a lot of time, trouble, and money.|
