When acting as an Entertainment Agency ( Employment Agency) Prima Artists normally charges artists a fee equivalent to a commission of 15 % + VAT. However, we reserve the right to vary this rate at any time either in specific cases or in general. This will only be done with the agreement of the Artist(s).
In cases where there is a split commission with another agency or cases where there is a higher than average level of expense in obtaining the booking, this agency may charge a higher level of commission. This will be done only with the prior agreement of the Artist(s).
Commission payable is always charged by way of a professional invoice which will be mailed or sent by email to the artist.
When the artist remits such commission to Prima Artists, the date of payment is deemed to be:
i) In the case of payment by post, the date of the postmark on the envelope.
ii) In the case of payment by BACS or internet banking, the date on which the amount appears in our bank account
iii) In the case of payment in person, the date on which that amount is physically paid.
All accounts with overdue balances that exceed 30 days will be subject to interest at the rate of 8% per month compounded.
No responsibility can be accepted for cash sent by mail.. If it is stolen or for any other reason we do not receive it, it is deemed to remain unpaid.
We therefore recommend that you pay either by crossed cheque, or by internet banking
Payments to Artists will usually be made by BACS Payment drawn on our clients account and Prima Artists reserve the right to deduct any commission owing.
Artists’ attention is drawn to our Terms of Business which includes details of our payment policies and details of the operation of our Client Account
