Money Matters 2017

Hey, Quebec members – spring is far away, but tax time is approaching! And money management is always on freelancers’ minds…

Join us February 15 for PWAC’S Money Matters, an evening devoted to money management for freelance writers. Our speakers will be Chartered Accountant Harriet Kirshenblatt, who specializes in income tax for self-employed workers, and former PWAC member and journalist Jean-Benoît Nadeau, author of Le Guide du Travailleur Autonome (The Self-Employed Worker’s Guide).

They will answer questions about paying taxes, managing cash flow, charging GST and QST, buying insurance, getting paid (by clients who want to pay and clients who don’t…), and saving money – all the nuts and bolts of handling your freelance dollars.

See you there!

Date: Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Time: 7pm – 9pm

Place: Atwater Library, 1200 Avenue Atwater, Westmount, Auditorium, 2nd floor
