Beginners Guide to Art and Self-Employment

6 December 2016 - 6 November 2016

With Rise Up at Newcastle Careers Service

This event was specifically aimed at recent graduates as a complete beginners guide to self-employment and tax returns

Subjects included:

  • Self employed and PAYE
  • Registering as Self Employed through HMRC
  • Stages of the registration process
  • Important documents, dates and deadlines
  • Tax returns basis
  • Pit falls to steer clear of
  • Keeping records

There was time for a Q&A following the discussions with information packs to take away.

This session was led by the Careers Service from Newcastle University and was therefore most applicable for Newcastle University Alumni who had graduated in the last three years.


There was a follow up event on Thursday 8th October 2016 with accountant Pete O’Hara, offering a more advanced advice session on self employment and tax returns. Please click here for more information.


This event programmed as part of Practice Makes Practice, an artist development programme run by artists for artists. Practice makes Practice focuses on developing artistic talent and equipping artists with the necessary skills to manage their practice, bridging the gap between art school, studio practice, the gallery and beyond.
