Do I have to pay taxes?

This depends on many factors. As a self-employed person, you have to pay income tax on your profit, no matter what kind of self-employed activity you conduct. Important: if you have mixed income sources (i.e., employment and self-employment), all types of income are added to determine your income tax rate for your self-employed activities. Self-employed people always have to file an income tax declaration. To roughly calculate your income tax rate, you can use a tool provided by the Ministry of Finance. Note that fees paid for gigs abroad might be subject to source taxation that the promoter abroad has to deduct from your fee. More on this in the section “On tour abroad”.
