    #04 Get started! Basics of international taxing for freelancers

    Value added tax in the international context: theory and practice

    This issue of Werkzeug & Austausch is dedicated by the produktionsbande to VAT in an international context. After a theory focus with an application outlook by Felix Sodemann (touring artists), Harriet Lesch will also take a closer look at the application in production practice together with Felix. 

    on theory:
    VAT regulations for cultural workers in the performing arts are often difficult to understand on a national level. It gets even more complicated when we are confronted with invoicing for international productions. After a short recap on the general meaning of VAT, the following questions will be addressed: How does VAT work in an international context? What is the reverse charge procedure? What is B2B and what is B2C? Are there exemptions? What do I have to pay attention to when paying tax? What must be considered with regard to subsidies?

    on practice:
    How does it work in practice? How do I find out if I have a foreign-related VAT case? How do we plan and calculate VAT in projects - in terms of time and budget? What do documents look like? What are the cross-regional differences in paying taxes? How important is professional tax advice? Which tax office do we actually talk to? For this, the produktionsbande is already collecting case studies to deal with such practical questions.

    a note:
    The focus of this W&A issue is on turnover tax in international work. It does not deal in depth with withholding or withholding tax (income tax) in international work. The connection with VAT is only briefly explained.

    Your questions:
    Please send your questions, open cases or well-solved examples specific to turnover tax with a foreign connection by 15 October 2023 either via the registration form or by e-mail to formate@produktionsbande.org.

    touring artists & Goethe-Institut in Exile

    11 July 2023, 3 pm: Lecture performance “Who writes the history and how?”

    12 July 2023, 3 pm: Panel discussion “Art in Exile or Weltenkunst?”

    How can artists who have had to leave their homeland for political reasons relate what they have experienced in their new environments – in environments that may not be familiar with the contexts of this art or may have certain expectations of what is being related? How do artists manage to continue the narrative of their artistic and political actions? To what extent does the label “artist in exile” impose limitations by withholding the true universal value of this art? Conversely, how do artists who do not explicitly depict war and authoritarianism in their art deal with the fact that they are confronted with certain expectations?

    Artist Sanaz Azimipour will ask how the first 100 days of the Jina Revolution have been related and can continue be related in the future in her lecture performance “Who writes the history and how?” on 11 July. Building on this, artists and representatives of cultural institutions will come together for the “Art in Exile or Weltenkunst?” panel discussion on 12 July, to discuss how art created in the context of war and authoritarianism can break free from labels and expectations.

    touring artists & Goethe-Institut in Exile is part of the ITI programme at Theater der Welt 2023.
