On December 13th, as part of the subject “design project and analysis management”, we had the opportunity to enjoy a lecture by Angel Rocamora, Futbol Club Barcelona’s financial manager and associate professor of tax and financial law at the University of Barcelona (UB).
The lecture consisted in a masterclass on a graphic designer’s fiscal and social obligations. Some of the issues covered were basic concepts (such as direct taxes and indirect taxes, or the functions of the Tax Agency and the Social Security), conditions when you are working for a company, circumstances when you work as a freelancer, and advantages and disadvantages of founding a society.
Angel expressed himself clearly and patiently, and he even answered all of our questions by the end of the session. It was a very useful lecture, contributing to a greater mastery of the topic and a much needed orientation towards our professional future.
