    A complete service with assumption of liability
    Our service includes taking on all tasks and obligations involved in processing artists’ fees. We offer comprehensive reporting and financial controlling which complies with film industry standards. Secure, quick and cost-effective.

    Transparent and reliable cost calculation
    Based on the requirements of the German Minimum Wage Act (MiLoG), we quote one price per extra based on the gross fee, regardless of the social security status of the extra. This will provide you with a simple and reliable basis for your cost calculation.

    Employment Contract / Payslip with copy facility
    Our free employment contracts are available as duplicate books. In addition to the original for payroll purposes, the production and the extra each receive a copy.

    Transfer of rights
    The legal transfer of image rights is an integral part of our employment contract templates and can be found on the original and all copies of the employment contract.

    Prompt reporting
    Our invoices are issued quickly and transparently. No later than one day after receipt of the payslips, you will receive an invoice and daily fee reports for your cost reporting. The prerequisite for this quick invoicing is an employment contract which complies with minimum wage requirements.

    Detailed documentation
    The invoicing includes a daily fee report for each day of the production, itemized according to extra and federal state. The payroll takes into account and records hours worked, overtime and distinguishes between tax-free and taxable allowances. We can provide you with statements for each day of the production, per invoice and/or per project. We also provide you with individual fee reports according to the extra’s filming day for the entire project. Ask us about other reporting options. We are waiting for your call!

    Control and legal documentation of the minimum wage
    Control and legal documentation of the minimum wage Minimum Wage Act – MiLoG. You will receive timesheets which are compliant with statutory requirements and we will of course archive them free-of-charge pursuant to MiLoG.

    Payroll client as Secured Server Download
    We set up a client in our payroll software (SESAM-Lohn from Sesam Software GmbH) for your production company or for your production. This client is available for download at any time via a secured server.

    Quick, prompt and cashless payments
    We transfer the extra’s fee quickly and promptly. For details of payments to extras, see FAQs for extras: When are fees transferred?
