Equity Distribution Services

8 September 2017

Equity will shortly commence distributions to performers of royalties and other usage payments related to their work undertaken on Equity contracts.

This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

Equity film and television royalties

BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky catch up/On Demand services

BBC, ITV and Channel 4 European Retransmission

Theatre cast album recordings

These are contractual payments and will normally be paid to the agent named on the corresponding contract.

As contractual payments are subject to VAT, Equity will operate a self-billing VAT system under which we send performers an invoice for their VAT files along with the appropriate amount of VAT. Therefore if you are VAT registered in the UK please can you complete the self-billing agreement found here or send us a copy of your VAT registration certificate (unless you have recently completed and submitted your VAT registration certificate to us).

If you have any questions regarding Equity’s distribution services, or the VAT self-billing system, please contact
