Dear Subscriber,

In this edition of our Payroll & Accounting newsletter we cover the highlights from the Sargent-Disc BAFTA Filmmakers' Market which was held in London on 5th July. We also bring you details of Sargent-Disc's Auto Enrolment services.

Read on for a detailed look at Vista Accounting software as well as an update on our Movie Magic Academic Partnerships Programme: we hear from Kirsty Barham, one of our Production Management scholars at the National Film & Television School.

Finally, we update you on our software, services and future training opportunities.

The Sargent-Disc BAFTA Filmmakers' Market took place on Saturday 5th July, bringing together many of the UK's top film industry professionals and over 500 emerging filmmakers. We reflect on some of the highlights of the busy and exciting day.

Podcasts containing highlights from the day are now available to download from the BAFTA Guru channel on iTunes.

We are excited to announce that SD Auto Enrolment, our integrated pension and payroll service, is now up and running. Available to Sargent-Disc payroll clients our solution integrates auto enrolment assessment, notices, calculation and submission of contributions to pension providers with our industry leading payroll service.

Read on for further information on our flexible, bespoke solution designed to help at every stage of the process from calculating contributions through to issuing notices to your employees.

Vista Accounting software is specifically designed for cost accounting in the entertainment industry. Whatever your production budget, Classic Vista and Global Vista offer the precision and flexibility you need for maximum cost efficiency.

Both systems are multi-user and multi-tasking and interface seamlessly with Movie Magic Budgeting and Sargent-Disc payroll. In this article we demonstrate how budgets can be imported easily and efficiently from Movie Magic Budgeting into Vista Accounting software.
