Payroll & Accounting Newsletter, April 2014

Welcome to the April 2014 edition of the Sargent-Disc Payroll & Accounting Newsletter. In this issue we bring you our latest case study on the bespoke artists managed payroll service Sargent-Disc created for Channel 4. We also report on the Sargent-Disc BAFTA TV Panel event which discussed financing, producing and distributing high end TV drama in light of the extended TV Tax Credit.

With Workplace Pension Reform now in full swing, we bring you details of SD Auto Enrolment, Sargent-Disc's Auto Enrolment solution. We also catch up with our NFTS Scholarship student, Tom, who gives us an update on his Production Management course.

Finally, we have an update on our Academic Partnership Programme and our upcoming training opportunities.

Sargent-Disc created a bespoke payroll service to meet Channel 4's complex repeat and residual payment requirements. In this case study we look at how the service was created and implemented and the results it has given Channel 4.
