I agree to be represented by Monarch People Ltd. and that Monarch is authorized to negotiate on my behalf, in consultation with myself, until such time as I notify Monarch in writing via email or post that this arrangement is terminated. I understand there may be a 1 month notice period imposed on me if I move to another competitive agent. Monarch is entitled to submit me throughout the one month notice and understand all work I have been submitted for by Monarch during this perior will be processed completely by Monarch even if shooting is outside of the 1 month period.
I understand that this arrangement is exclusive and that I may not enter into any agreement with another agent during the term of this arrangement without Monarch's prior consent.
I agree that should I leave the agency, Monarch retains the right to invoice for and collect commissions etc. on any work negotiated and/or contracted during the term of our relationship.
Please do advise us of any future changes to your appearance or contact details as soon as possible. The same goes for any blocks of unavailable time such as overseas trips or exam schedules where we should not submit you for work.
An IR330 must be filled in and signed in order for us to be able to pay you when you gain work through Monarch.
If you are on a work visa a copy must also be provided to Monarch prior to receiving any payment.
Monarch will deduct 20% with-holding tax from your earnings as required by law and that will be on-paid to the IRD. You will receive an email pay slip notifying you of any payments made.
All payments will be made via internet banking so your bank account number is required for that purpose.
At the end of the financial year you will be able to access a summary of your earnings through Monarch on the IRD website. It is your responsibility to submit your own end of year tax return to IRD.
ACC is your responsibility and IRD calculate this on your earnings and bill you annually.
We will submit you for any commercial work you are suitable for without contacting you to check availability usually. If you are requested by the casting director for an audition we will email and text you with the information. The script and/or brief will be emailed and in all cases must be treated as CONFIDENTIAL. We are rarely given much warning on these so please respond immediately that you are available for the audition and job, or if you are not, so that we can notify the casting director.
It is your responsibility to ensure you are free for the shoot dates and that there are no conflicts later through the audition process. If so please notify us urgently. Please arrive at your audition at least 10 minutes prior to your notified time and go prepared in wardrobe and style suited to the part auditioning for. We will notify you of any feedback we receive following your audition. It is unusual to hear anything unless you have been successful in gaining the part, or if you have messed the audition up. Don't be surprised if you don't hear anything from us afterwards. If there is anything to tell you, we assure you we will call :
Due to the nature of our work is important to keep your images current. Ideally you will have a good range of photographs on the website which show a range of looks suitable for the style you will be submitted for i.e. businessman, mother, fashion work. Your initial shots when joining Monarch will get you started, and your ongoing images will build as you get work, however it is important to invest in fresh shots at least a couple of times a year. Photography shoots can be arranged by appointment and we can also provide you with information on various photographers if you are interested with a large range of experience and fees.
