Event Details

This event is sold out on December 12 and January 30, so this new February 21 date is now added!

Registration: 12:45 | Event: 13:00-16.30 beginning with a lunch and general discussion

This half-day seminar is a must for all financial or budget holding staff and anyone who wants to know how tax affects (and can benefit) arts and heritage organisations with charitable status in Scotland. 

Also part of the Resourcing Scotland's Heritage Programme

The accompanying general tax guide provides a practical summary and guidance on how tax affects the arts and heritage organisations.  The event and guide are a great refresher and reference for those who need reminding of basic principles and want to know how different taxes interact with each other.

The event covers:

  • Corporate Tax

  • VAT

  • Gift aid

  • Basic rules, common issues and opportunities.

The event will look at the tax status of income, box office arrangements, room hires, trading activities, memberships, grants and donations and sponsorship.  It will highlight tax savings that can be available and the issues and opportunities that frequently affect arts and heritage organisations. It will be based on current rules and procedures and highlight common errors and dispel common tax myths. 

“It was all very informative and helpful in giving me a better understanding of tax. The trainers were excellent.”
Fiona Greer, Scottish Maritime Museum

“If you are running or about to run a regular giving or membership scheme, or corporate sponsorship - then this event is very useful.”
Zuleika Brett, V&A Museum of Design Dundee

“It is all useful and money saving information!”
Lee Scott, The Hunterian



Includes lunch and refreshments throughout

About the Speakers: Kirsty Murray (Tax Director) and Scott Craig (VAT Partner), Scott-Moncrieff

Kirsty and Scott regularly assist arts and heritage organisations on all aspects of tax.  This ranges from day to day compliance matters to capital projects and corporate transactions.  Kirsty and Scott work together to ensure arts and heritage organisations understand how tax affects their organisation and to remove or reduce the cost of tax.  They regularly help arts and heritage organisations to improve the overall tax position of collaborations, service agreements, box office transactions, membership schemes, fundraising activities, retail and catering activities.
