SET DESIGNERS HAVE A NUMBER OF TAX DEDUCTIONS THAT ARE UNIQUE TO ANY OTHER INDUSTRY.
Below we have put together a list of some of the expense you are entitled to as a Set Designer.
USE OF HOME AS AN OFFICE
Use of home as an office is an expense that all too often missed out by Set Designers. If you use your home to update your website, work with contractors or any other work-related uses you are entitled to claim this expense.
You are able to claim a percentage of your household bills for your use of home as an office.
Getting your name seen and heard is a major part of being a successful set designer. Anyways you promote yourself in an effort to get ahead in your career is claimable. Whether you pay to be mentioned in an article or directory, run an ad campaign or any other forms of promotion- it's claimable.
Equipment is defined as items that you intend to use for a prolonged period. Your do not include this in your business expenses but instead in an AIA (Annual Investment Allowance), which works to reduce the tax you pay.
If the item has been brought for a part-personal reasons you will have to apportion the expense. So that laptop you brought to apply for auditions can go on you AIA and save you money!
