I find the Production Guild to be an invaluable resource in all stages of production, providing clarity on all manner of issues such as the latest info on HMRC advice, ranging from meal and petrol allowances to whether someone should be paid schedule D or not. I also find their members' database and availability service incredibly helpful when crewing up a new production.
