REMEMBER TO USE THE ABOVE AS A GUIDE. NEGOTIATION IS AT AN AGENCIES DISCRETION AND WILL VARY FROM ONE ASSIGNMENT TO ANOTHER.
The agency will deduct their commission on all monies invoiced by them; this is the agency fee. An agency will only issue payment upon receipt of client's payments and some clients take up to 3 months to settle their accounts.
An artist/parent should always check their agencies terms and conditions regarding payment. There is a legal requirement for agencies to pay within 7 days after being paid by their client.
