The artist’s fees toolkit
. . . to The artist’s fees toolkit
The artist’s fees toolkit takes you step-by-step through a process to calculate your individual daily rate and prepare quotes for freelance work.
You are guided through a series of forms, where you enter your personal income requirements, overheads particular to your practice and the realistic number of days you can work annually. You enter the figures and the toolkit does all the calculations. We recommend you use this toolkit regularly to ensure your rate of pay stays in line with your needs.
Written by financial expert Richard Murphy and published with Arts Council England support, The artist’s fees toolkit is one of a series of resources from a-n: The Artists Information Company around good practice in valuing and paying artists.
