Resources for MU Members

The Musicians’ Union produces an annual handbook for members.  Before you pay a penny to an accountant you should open up your copy of the handbook and turn to the Tax Savings Guide.  This section has lots of useful information about organising your accounts and the expenses you may be able to claim.  The MU also runs seminars from time to time in Scotland (and elsewhere) to provide additional support to members.
