My client is a self employed jazz musician who gets by on tutoring and playing gigs.He completes an SA return for tax purposes.

He recently received a couple of small grants, ( a few hundred pounds) one from PRSF to assist with costs of recording CD and one from Jazz Services support for a band tour.

Should these grants be declared as income on his SA return?

In my view, yes. Appears intended to defray trading expenses.

No. Just net it off against the expenditure that is subsidised before claiming relief for that expenditure.

Netting it off is fine but essentially it's still taxable income as the result it the same...
