Sargent Disc’s End-to-End Digital Payroll Workflow is the first completely digital production payroll service available to the entertainment industries in the UK and Ireland.

Before COVID-19, efficiency and sustainability were the predominant reasons for productions going paperless. As expected, the pandemic has accelerated the demand for systems that are both reliable and contactless, with productions needing to reduce the handling of physical documentation to ensure a safer working environment for crew, artists, and other employees.

Covering every step of the payroll process, Sargent-Disc's End-to-End Digital Payroll Workflow is a safe, efficient, and comprehensive solution for production accountants wherever they find themselves working in the COVID era. It’s easy to use, and the system can be tailored to meet the needs of each production—regardless of type or size. Designed for international productions shooting in the UK and Ireland, it consists of three elements powered by the CrewStart, Payroll, and Payslips applications within Sargent Disc’s Digital Production Office.

The End-to-End Digital Payroll Workflow Masterclass will take you through the process from start to finish - including:

  • Start Forms and Contracting
  • Time and Attendance
  • Hot Costs
  • Calculation and approval of timesheets
  • Creation of secure payroll worksheets
  • Payroll Reports
  • Online payslips
  • Secure Auto Enrolment Notices
