Commissions to the Agency
All agency commissions on bookings and/or residuals are bound
by SAG-AFTRA rules and regulations.
Here are the SAG-AFTRA guidelines for paying an agent's commission:
If actors are paid directly from production for a booking and/or for residuals, it is the actor's responsibility to pay the commission to the agent, unless otherwise directed by the agent (in some rare instances, the agency fee is paid directly to the agent).
If actors are paid from the agency, the agency fee has been taken out and the actor is not responsible for paying the agency fee.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your SAG-AFTRA Professional Representatives Department at 323.549.6745 (LA) or 212.863.4205 (NY) for additional information.
