The SAFC offers a unique "purpose-written" computer program to administer all income and expenditure, providing up to date and confidential sales distribution information to producers.
Calculating investor returns
The SAFC disbursement system calculates exact returns for each investor, and cheques can be printed directly from the database. We specialise in "10B" and "10BA" titles.
Calculating actors' residuals
The payments due to actors from time to time are monitored and processed direct from the database - similar to the investor's disbursements. The reporting requirements of the MEAA are included in this service and handled by the SAFC.
Sales & contract management
The database regularly tracks agent reporting and agents are contacted regarding late reporting and outstanding payments. This maximises receipts and returns to Investors.
Clients receive regular reports detailing the complete financial status of the film, including details of costs such as investor's disbursements, marketing, actors' residuals, and the current bank account balance.
The SAFC pays for an independent audit to be done on a regular basis, and records are available for inspection at any time.
We charge an initial Set-up Fee and a Disbursement Fee on each occasion that a disbursement is processed. BOTH fees are deducted from the film fund receipts and not payable by the producer, as they are legitimate expenses.
