VAI is pleased to work with Sligo County Council Arts Service to offer this information session dealing with the various financial aspects of self-employment for visual artists. The session aims to give an outline of the benefits and responsibilities of being registered as self-employed and to discuss what this means in relation to the Artist’s Tax exemption; social welfare entitlements (when work opportunities are not available); pension entitlements when you reach retirement age and planning for financial security in older age.
In addition our colleagues from the Irish Visual Artists’ Rights Organisation (IVARO) will discuss copyright for visual artists, what it is and how to assert and protect your intellectual property rights, as well as IVARO services in the collection of copyright royalties and the Artist’s Resale Right on behalf of visual artists.
