About the event: 

Over the last 20 years governments have introduced various creative tax reliefs to enable organisations to claim back some of their production costs. Two of these – Orchestra Tax Relief and Theatre Tax Relief – are already being used by Making Music members to claim back an average 23% of their concert and event costs. Especially now that a higher rate of relief has been made permanent in the spring budget, these tax reliefs can make a significant contribution to groups’ budgets and facilitate growth and activity.


However, so far, there has not been a way for choirs to benefit. The proposal now supported by a wide range of organisations in the music sector is that we all ask that ‘voice’ be recognised as one of the instruments eligible under Orchestra Tax Relief.


Come to this event, hosted by Barbara Eifler, Co-CEO of Making Music, and Alison Reeves, Deputy CEO, to learn more about creative tax reliefs, how your choir could benefit, and how you could help bring about the necessary change to enable choirs to claim Orchestra Tax Relief.
