How To Survive Touring Financially

Dick Molenaar All Arts Belastingadviseurs (NL)

English spoken

There are many obstacles when touring, but some are hidden in the financial corner: income taxation,
social security and VAT. But they can cut off a big chunck of the profit if not dealt with in the correct
way. Especially on the European continent every country has its own rules and the EU is just partly
able to harmonize. But borders are crossed easily, supported by ETEP and the national Export
Bureaus, so these financial factors are becoming more important. And for the UK the effect of Brexit
on these rules is very relevant.
How to survive from touring financially? Dick Molenaar will explain the rules for international taxation,
social security and VAT, with much room for questions and discussion.
