Payroll & Accounting newsletter, February 2011

We are very pleased to bring you the latest edition of Sargent-Disc's Payroll & Accounting newsletter. In this edition we highlight the latest enhancements to our payroll service, including secure online payslips for employees. We also take a look at the impact of gender in the Film Industry and provide an interactive chart for you to see the results for each department. Finally, we feature upcoming training dates for Movie Magic and Vista Accounting and highlight some events from our industry partners Bafta. We hope you will find it interesting.

Is it a 'Man's World'?

In this insight article we take a look at pay in the UK Film Industry over the last three years. We investigate the importance of gender on pay and employment and ask whether or not it is ‘a man’s world’. To help answer the question we have created an interactive chart for you to see how pay varies for men and women across a wide range of production departments.
