Location Description
Online via Zoom

The event is a cooperation of the Alumni Club of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna together with  the IG Bildende Kunst.

We devote ourselves to the 1×1 on the way to the tax return: collecting and sorting receipts, keeping lists, filling out forms. And then? How much tax do I have to pay?

And first of all: Who is liable to pay taxes at all? What can I deduct from my taxes? What details must a correct invoice contain? How do I make an income and expenditure statement? Who has to declare foreign income in Austria?

We also take a look at scholarships and prizes. We explain terms such as business expenses, double taxation and small business:internal flat rate. We look at relevant tax office forms. After input from Doris Krenn (tax consultant), participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Lecturer: Doris Krenn (tax consultant)

Moderation: Dila Kaplan (IG Visual Arts)

Co-moderation (chat): Daniela Koweindl (IG Bildende Kunst)

In cooperation of IG Bildende Kunst and Alumniverein der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien. Registration is not required.
