SCOUT MANAGEMENT PTY. LTD. will invoice any client with credit approval on strict 14 day terms, otherwise EFT payment prior to recording session will be required. Order numbers will be quoted where provided. Credit facility may be withdrawn for non-compliance of payment terms.
The Talent engages the Agency to be their Agent Representative and the Agency has the Talent’s written authority to enter into contracts with any and all Clients on their behalf. The Client is defined as the “End-User” by the Australian Taxation Office. The Agency is an “Intermediary” as defined in the ATO’s “Superannuation Guarantee Ruling SGR 2005/2” – https://www.ato.gov.au/law/view/document?docid=SGR/SGR20052/NAT/ATO/00001
A contract is created between Client and Talent once a booking is confirmed with the Agency whether written, written and partly oral, or wholly oral, as stated in the ATO’s “Superannuation Guarantee Ruling SGR 2005/2” (Clause 38). In accordance with the ATO’s “PAYG withholding for performing artists” Guidelines, the Agency is entitled to raise invoices and collect monies on behalf of Talent, as an intermediary, even though the contract exists between Client and Talent.
Scout Management Pty. Ltd. acts as agent and representative of the voice artists, and is not their employer. Payments are made to the agent on their behalf, the company or person paying for their services at each recording session is effectively the employer and as such is responsible for deducting tax and payment of superannuation, should the voice artist be a PAYG tax payer.
When payment is made we must also receive a Remittance Advice from your company detailing the payment(s) including invoice number(s), tax taken and superannuation amount paid.
SUPERANNUATION: is payable at 9.5% in addition to the invoiced amount, for any performer who earns more than $450 in a calendar month from your company and is a PAYG tax payer. Please see the Australian Tax Office website for full information on performers as PAYG tax payers. CONTRACTS: Where a contract is required, negotiation of fees for the voice artist must be complete and a signed contract must be lodged with Scout Management prior to setting the recording date(s).
PRIVACY: Your details will never be passed on to a third party, we will only use those details collected to keep you up to date with information on our voice artists and our promotions.
