HOW DOES THE PAYMENT WORK IF I BOOK THE JOB?
DOES IT COST TO AUDITION? NO, absolutely not! Many of you whom are new to the industry and don't know us often ask if it costs to audition. The answer is a ABSOLUTELY NOT. It never costs to audition and never should.
DO YOU SELL ANYTHING? NO, we do not sell any products, nor do we sell headshots. We do not refer out companies that do.
DO YOU HAVE START UP FEES? NO, we do not charge any weird start up fees.
Basically, we recommend that you ignore anybody trying to sell you anything at any castings; we don't know them and they should not be there. Its unfortunate that we even have to say all this. Watch out for websites that charge you anything to join. There are a lot of them out there that are very poor and take more money than you ever make AND a few that are good.
Here is a simple test. Calculate your end of the year totals to see if you paid more or made more at the end of the year. If you paid more, simply STOP and cancel immediately. With us you have a 100% guarantee you can only possibly make more. Its pretty easy when we don't charge anything.
IF YOU BOOKED THE JOB, READ BELOW PLEASE.
The rate for each job is clearly stated on the casting breakdown page, registration page, and details page. The rate is not negotiable. If you don't like the rate offered, simply don't agree to it and wait for a job which you like the rate. Directions for each job for payment will be provided. They vary from client to client.
WHO PAYS ME?
The client is the one that pays the money as a contractor. We do not hire anybody as an employee. The money comes from the client. We help service the agreement.
DO I NEED TO FILL OUT PAPERWORK?
Yes, if you book please click HERE to fill out a W9 form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and W9 in the subject title. This is NOT needed to audition. You have to do this even if you filled one out at the job. You only need to do this one time unless you move or change your name. The registration link or job agreement link pages serve as your e-agreement with All Around Talent.
REMEMBER - You need to mark down you are from All Around Talent on all client's paperwork per our agreement, not independent or any other company. IF YOU MARK DOWN YOU ARE INDEPENDENT or ANOTHER COMPANY, it may delay your payment and you will pay a 20% broker penalty fee.
HOW LONG DOES PAYMENT TAKE? (top question)
Our clients averages 5 to 45 days to send out payments out. The trend is becoming faster and faster. Some clients still mail us checks which can add more time for payment receipt. Each client pays a little differently. Directions will be supplied to you how the client will be paying you.
If it is past the time your check should have reached you, please be sure to email email@example.com with your name, brand you worked for, date you worked, and location you worked with "PAYMENT CONCERN" in the subject line. We will assist you to help you get paid the best we can. Due to the sensitivity of payment issues, we do request that payment issues be addressed IF NEEDED by email for documentation purposes. Payment punctuality is one of our top priorities for all talent. The client makes payment to you.
WHERE IS PAYMENT SENT TO? It is sent to the address on your W9 form via check in the mail or to your bank account. This will vary from client to client depending on their payment method. This info is provided in advance of each casting.
OTHER PAYMENT INFO. You must be legal to work in the US (on jobs in the US) and have a social security number. You are paid as an contractor not an employee. This means you cannot file unemployment with us. No taxes are taken out
