Are you a muso serious about your career?

How serious are you?

There is a lot of dissent in the ranks regarding the 'lack of work' and I hear it often, yet I re-list so many names regularly in the gig guides... I have found over all these years there are a few pitfalls that some tend to fall into.

whatsoncentralcoast imageWhats On Logo button image ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY UPDATE:
Entertainment Industry update
The NSW Government enacted new laws to guide and regulate the entertainment industry, and particularly to assist performers and performer representatives (formerly called agents and managers). These laws came into effect on 1 March 2014, following extensive consultation with the industry and peak associations.

Over the last 18 months NSW IR has conducted an education campaign to assist performer representatives understand and comply with the new requirements.

The campaign comprised advisory letters, fact sheets, workshops and a recorded webinar for the entertainment industry.

NSW IR has now commenced a compliance audit of a number of randomly selected performer representatives.

The audit is being conducted in two main phases.

The first phase involves each selected performer representative providing a copy of their 'template' entertainment industry managerial agreement and copies of the last five managerial agreements that have been entered into with performers.
In addition each participant organisation was requested to provide a copy of their 'standard' representation agreement and copies of the last five 'standard' agreements entered into with performers.
These agreements will be reviewed to assess compliance with the Act, and at the completion of this phase of the audit NSW IR will provide feedback to each participant about their agreements.

The second phase of the audit will be to randomly select a number of performer representatives to participate further in reviewing records required to be maintained by performer representatives, including trust account records, financial statements, fees and commissions.
It is our intention to undertake this audit in a cooperative manner to assist the industry. At the end of the audit we expect to publish a de-identified report to further assist compliance in the entertainment industry.
