About Governance & Tax
Arts Law advocates for effective governance frameworks within the arts sector to provide stronger ethical and economic support to artists. Arts Law campaigns against governance policies which impose unnecessarily burdensome administrative obligations on non-profit organisations while supporting best practice standards of transparency and accountability. Arts Law also closely monitors the impact of tax law and Australian Tax Office rulings on artists. It advocates for clearer and more effective frameworks governing tax implications which address the ways in which professional artists carry on a business. On this front, together with the National Association for the Visual Artists, Arts Law has lobbied against the removal of laws permitting artwork to be held in superannuation funds.
