Hamley will cover subjects such as basic bookkeeping, maintaining records, GST & income tax filing, and project accounting for individual artists.

This workshop includes extensive time for questions and answers, and will be especially useful for artists working on a project-by-project basis, but applicable to accountancy for all practitioners paid as self-employed proprietors. This workshop does not cover accounting for incorporated businesses, but related questions are welcome.
