if the service took place in the UK and not in italy would this still apply?
So just to get this straight. My UK company would not be liable for any national taxes or fees other than paying the artist cost, which they would need to invoice for? Is that just a company expense (professional services)? I ask this because there are all sorts of laws with regards ***** ***** and sports person, so just need to 100% before engaging the artist as id have to include this in their agreement
Waleed, thanks for your reply.Your agreement with the artist should be that of a service provision with clear stipulation that the artist would be responsible to the tax authorities for taxation.You are engaing the artist as you would engage an accountant for a special project and expect him to render an invoice for professional services.Make sure the fee payment clause covers the points about paying gross.In your books you would process the invoice as normal expenditure and refect it as professional fees. The same treatment if the event was in the UK and not in Italy.I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
sorry to be a pain. so the artist stated that
2. The Promoter (ME) agrees that the Fee will be net and free of all local and national taxes.
meaning UK right?
