We can help you streamline every aspect of talent payment—estimates, pension & health payments, holding fees, state and federal tax filings, worker’s comp insurance and annual W-2s. Whether we manage the whole process for you or help you do it, our technology can streamline your workflow and make the process efficient.
A few of the services we offer include:
Talent and residual cost estimates - Whether it’s one commercial in a few markets or an annual budget covering a full range of uses, we provide fast, accurate, easy-to-read cost estimates.
Talent clearance (aka "Station 12") - Confirm the union status of each performer before work begins and you can help avoid costly surprises that plague too many productions. In addition, we can also handle Taft-Hartley waivers when applicable.
Talent classification and notifications - We can review your storyboards or commercials to identify the performance category of each performer. And if we’re brought in early enough, we can show you ways to save on talent costs. We can also handle talent notification of upgrades, downgrades and outgrades.
Holding fee notices and cycle expiration reports - Receive monthly reminders of upcoming holding fees and cycle expirations. Just give us the status of your commercial, and we’ll take care of processing your talent payments.
Talent inquiries - We handle questions from talent and their agents regarding commercial use, talent payments, tax issues, worker’s compensation insurance, unemployment claims, etc.
State and federal tax inquiries - We deal with all state, federal and foreign tax authorities, covering new hire reporting, tax audits, tax garnishments, court liens, etc.
We can also help you with radio ad distribution.
