Bookkeeping for Artists

The next workshop in our WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL series is BOOKKEEPING FOR ARTISTS!

In this introductory workshop we will be looking at how to keep better records for our small art business. It’s not as hard as you think! Learning the basics of Manger, a fantastic free program, we will look at keeping track of our receipts, how to create an invoice, spending and receiving money, export reports you can send to your accountant and prepare quarterly BAS information to help you complete your tax obligations easily. Finally we will look at applying for an ABN as a sole trader.

It’s on the 19th of August, places are limited, for all the details and book HERE.
