Our March hubchat explores whether the introduction of tax breaks would have any value for the independent music sector.
In light of the introduction of tax breaks in the UK for other areas of the creative industries (film, gaming, theatre) and the consultation that’s currently open around introducing them for opera and the orchestral sector, is there any value in exploring tax breaks for the wider music sector? If so, what kind of breaks would be best? What can we learn from those who’ve gone before?
This one-hour discussion was streamed live from King's College London and featured panel-discussion with our guest panellists Gavin Sharp from Manchester's Band on the Wall, Mark Davyd from the Music Venue Trust and tax expert Sean Egan.
Them's the Breaks is part of a series of hubchats/webinars that the hub is doing as part of our Joining the Dots project (JTD). JTD is all about independent music, and more specifically about supporting game-changing ideas, sharing know-how and connecting people. We are looking to inspire people in three areas in particular – testing new financial models, how technology can drive up live attendance, and building younger audiences. Our hubchats are part of a body of events and online resources we’re producing, with help from members of the Community of the Curious and the Generous, a bunch of like-minded people working in music who share what they know with each other for their own and the greater good.
