Online member meetup (youth groups)

This event is for youth member groups; that is groups which are only for young people or groups which have a youth group which is separate from the main group.

We know that our youth member groups up and down the UK are feeling the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on their activities. With uncertainty around how to get through these difficult times, we think it’s more important than ever for us to help youth music groups to get in touch with each other and share learning, ideas and to support one other.

Orchestra Tax Relief overview: What it is, who can benefit and how we can help

Orchestra Tax Relief (OTR) is a government initiative that means instrumental groups could receive a payment from HMRC equal to a percentage of their production costs.

Despite being called 'Orchestra Tax Relief':

  • the initiative can apply to many types of instrumental group – so don’t be put off if your group is not a traditional orchestra 
  • you don’t have to be paying tax to claim it.   

Groups who put on eligible performances can submit a claim to HMRC each year for the payment. 

Orchestra Tax Relief service

Member groups can register for our Orchestra Tax Relief (OTR) claim service. 

Orchestra Tax Relief (OTR) overview - webinar

This online webinar will introduce you to Orchestra Tax Relief, a new source of income for instrumental groups with 12 or more performers, explaining what it is and how your group can benefit from it.

 

You can find out more about OTR, including whether you are eligible and how to claim, in our resources:
