Presenter Peer Session (R105 discussion and reception)

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

3:00 – 5:00 PM

Location: Acadia A & B, Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel

Presenting foreign artists can be challenging. There are the visa issues, and then there are the tax issues. In recent years, office restructuring at the Canada Revenue Agency and increase in standards for compliance have turned the Regulation 105 witholding tax and waiver processes into real hurdles both for presenters and for the foreign artists they wish to present. This year’s presenters peer session will focus on R105. The discussion will seek to define all the issues for performing arts presenters and to articulate clear recommendations for improving the administration of R105.

Hosted by: CAPACOA’s Frédéric Julien and Board Members, Laura (Lulu) Healy from the Halifax Jazz Festival and Chris Dearlove from the National Arts Centre’s Scene Festivals.
