Money management for creative people and businesses

  • Rabble Studio 103 Bute Street Cardiff, Wales, CF10 5AD United Kingdom (map)

Keeping on top of your accounts and financial obligations can be a right headache when you're self-employed, freelance or a small business in the creative industry.

With this two hour workshop, chartered accountant Lauren Harvey from Full Stop Accounts shares her tips, tricks and years of experience to take the struggle out of numbers.

Lauren will cover simple systems you can implement to keep things running smoothly, how accountancy software can sort everything you need for your tax return and ways to make your accounts much easier to understand, use and manage.

You'll also learn about what you can legally claim for (which is probably more than you think), how to do the maths without getting a migraine and why you no longer have to keep paper versions of every single receipt. Phewph!

This workshop will almost certainly save you money. You can even claim the ticket on your expenses!
