Payroll and Accounting, November 2014

Dear Subscriber,

In this edition of the Payroll & Accounting newsletter we would like to thank you all for your continued support as we celebrate winning the Payroll World Specialist Payroll Provider 2014.

We also bring you the highlights from both the BAFTA TV Question Time which was held in London on 27th October, and the Broadcast Prodution and Post Forum which was held at BAFTA on the 5th and 6th November.

This month we also congratulate two new recipients of the Sargent-Disc Production Management Scholarship at the National Film and Television School, and we hear from Tom While, last year's scholar.

Finally, we are running a number of Movie Magic Budgeting and Scheduling training courses. Read on to find out more. 

Sargent-Disc is delighted to be announced as the recipient of this year's Specialist Payroll Provider at the National Payroll World Awards 2014.

On their decision, the judges said: "Sargent-Disc operates in the highly specialist and demanding TV and film industry. HMRC has a particularly strong compliance focus on the sector and on top of this Sargent-Disc operates in a non standard PAYE environment, is internationally experienced and has moved from a paper to an online platform."
