A new website that aims to help people working in the arts navigate Brexit related issues has been launched.
UK Europe Arts Work covers topics including work permits, visas, international tax obligations across specific EU territories and carnets for merchandise and equipment.
The resource publishes guidelines from the government’s department of trade, culture and associated departments, and EU trade and culture bodies, which are updated on a regular basis.
It also covers freedom of movement within the EU, and entering and exiting the UK.
Website co-founder Ian Smith said: “Our clear intention is to bring, from properly sourced fact-checked information, clarity. Though it’s apparent the EU and UK will not begin negotiations until March, as as much clarity as possible is needed now. We are also very keen to avoid musicians and other artists being ripped off by companies.”
Smith will also intermittently upload YouTube videos explaining website content.
UK Europe Arts Work is apolitical and free to use.
