Independent artists face a challenging road, as difficult as it is rewarding. But while most artists have a strong inner sense of how to deepen their creative skills, they can sometimes neglect the business and taxes side of things. That’s understandable; whatever led you to your artistic calling, it probably wasn’t a love of spreadsheets.

If your art is your livelihood, however, the fact is you can’t completely ignore the numbers. Not knowing, or not complying with, the demands of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) can be a recipe for disaster that sinks your creative endeavor before it even begins.

Fortunately there’s hope! Armed with just a little foreknowledge and planning, you can keep your finances and taxes on track, leaving most of your energy free to pursue your creative passion without worry or stress.

This Tax Workshop presented by Sunny Widerman of Personal Tax Advisors is an entertaining and information-packed presentation about the financial and tax aspects of running your own business.

Great! While the other speakers had great information, [she] outshone them with a sunny personality (no pun intended)…Heartfelt, frank, and funny. –Steven B, workshop participant

This webinar is a friendly, approachable introduction to what you need to know to get you started. We promise you won’t be intimidated, and you definitely won’t be bored!

We should get you on TV! Not many personalities can be so entertaining about taxes. [I especially appreciated] your balance of expertise and humour. Excellent, lively and informative. –Marlene O.

In this workshop you’ll learn about the GST, deductible expenses, how to use RRSPs to protect your income, and why doing what you love is great business. Take the opportunity to ask all your lingering tax questions during the Q&A from an expert who has been working in taxes since 2002. No judgement, just great advice and information with a sense of humour on the side.

Excellent – friendly, accessible and non-intimidating. I’ve hesitated to consult a tax preparer in the past because I was afraid he or she wouldn’t “get” freelancers, but this presentation put me more at ease…[I loved] the jargon-free language and humour. – A.K. Walker
