Event Planners

Working as an events planner is not just about planning a party here and there, you could be planning the most important day of someone’s life; their wedding. This of course is not to mention the possibilities of team building days, or corporate training days for your commercial clients.

An events planner would usually take care of the following requirements for their clients:

  • Discussing with your client their exact requirements
  • Sourcing appropriate venues to host the event
  • Sourcing the entertainment
  • Sources equipment
  • Arranging times and dates
  • Arranging catering if required
  • And if that wasn’t difficult enough you have to do all that on sometimes the smallest of budgets

I think it goes as far to say that it can be a very difficult, yet rewarding career choice; rewards which of course could be amplified should you decide to do this on a freelance basis.

There are many benefits in going freelance as an events planner, benefits such as:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Working on various different projects at the same time
  • Being able to make your own decisions and inputting your own creative flair
  • Take home a much higher percentage of your wage than your counterparts because of your ability to claim expenses for tax relief

As a business owner you will be able to submit expenses for tax relief which allows you to take home a much larger percentage of your pay than an employee operating on a PAYE basis. Expenses which could include petrol costs, advertising expenses, professional courses / memberships, accountancy fees, etc.
