  • RE: Arts grants taxable?

    Hi, The organisation is called Help Musicians UK. The grant was indeed designed to help self-employed musicians replace lost income due to coronavirus, however having lost income was not a condition for receiving the grant. The terms of the grant were that the majority of income had to be from performing and that I was eligible and already receiving universal credit. Thank you for your response.
  • Arts grants taxable?

    I'm a self-employed musician. I received a monthly grant last year from a third-party organisation to support my work- not related to any specific project. Is this taxable? Thank you.
  • Self-employed overnight travel expenses

    Can I use HMRC scale rates to account for my own overnight travel expenses as a self-employed trader? Or does this only apply for employees of a business. Thank you.
