Presenter: Chartered Accountant Lauren Thiel

Preparing your tax can be difficult to wrap your head around if you are a sole trader, particularly if you are a sole trader with part-time employment, as many artists are.

This session with Chartered Accountant Lauren Thiel will guide you through the basics of preparing and lodging a tax return and dispelling common myths around what can be claimed and the record keeping required.  

Experienced Chartered Accountant Lauren Thiel specialises in working with creatives and will be hosting a webinar for the Guildhouse community online on Wednesday 10 June, 2 pm.

Please note: To facilitate a conversational tone and participant interaction, places are limited to under 10 participants.
