Taxes may be the only certain thing in life other than death, but their determination is far from certain due to the intertwining of different norms both nationally and internationally. In the field of culture, taxes are even a more delicate issue given the complications associated with the particular employment status of people employed in this sector, especially when residing and working in different countries. For this reason, the European Association of Festivals (EAF) and the Association of Employers in the Performing Arts Sector (PEARLE) have prepared an up-to-date guide that tries to explain in an understandable language the tax aspects of working in the cultural sector within the European Union.
#culturalpolicies is a collaborative project between A25 Cultural Foundation and the Informational Portal for NGOs in Bulgaria. Its goal is to shed light on key decisions, processes, and policies from Bulgaria and around the world, important not only to the professionals in the sector, but also necessary for the well-being of all of us as citizens.
In 2022 the rubrics #culturalpolicies is implemented under the “A25/22” project, financed by the “One-Year Grant 2021” program of the National Culture Fund, Bulgaria.
