We calculate residuals due; health, welfare, and pension benefits payments; and applicable payroll taxes.

Residuals (compensation for the reuse of an artist’s work in media) are governed by the Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA) and can be unwieldy to manage at scale. With GreenSlate as your payroll provider, you can easily transition from payroll processing to residuals, streamlining your work and eliminating the need for multiple touchpoints. We’re here to guide you every step of the way.

SAG, DGA, WGA, AFM and IATSE are all guilds or unions subject to residuals. We execute payments at your request to meet union deadlines, and send residual payment checks to the guilds with reporting for verification and remittance.
