Make sure you're on top of your tax and immigration

Are you a professional dancer?

As a professional dancer you are likely to be spending a significant amount of time in various countries teaching, competing and doing shows.

If you are then read on...


When you spend a significant amount of time in any country you risk tax and residency issues. Every country has different rules so it's important that you monitor how many days you spend in each country. Below are some examples of residency rules for a few countries.

CountryTax Residency Rule
Hong KongIndividuals earning income that arises in or is derived from a Hong Kong office or Hong Kong employment, or from services rendered in Hong Kong during visits of more than 60 days in any tax year, are subject to salaries tax.
United KingdomYou are deemed tax resident if you spend more than 183 days in a tax year within the country
United States of AmericaYou are tax resident if you spend 31 days in the current year AND 183 days during the 3 year period that includes the current year. The calculation is all the days in the current year and 1/3 of the days in the year before the current year and 1/6 of the days in the year before that.


A lot of countries require you to have at least 6 months left on your passport to be allowed to travel. It is therefore essential that you keep track of when your passport expires to ensure minimal disruption to your travels.

Depending on your nationality and the countries you are visiting you may also need entry visas. Visas have a shorter validity and may take a long time to obtain.
