How we can help
Our most popular advisory service is the information we can share from our Charge-out survey which has proved useful in countering claims made by some clients' procurement departments. We also give regular advice on margins, export licensing , salary costs and overhead recovery rates as well as dealing with such esoteric, but potentially high risk, issues as performers' royalties, celebrities' National Insurance, zero-rated VAT on Direct Marketing bundled services, or alternative Credit Insurance when your existing underwriter cuts up rough. Getting these elements wrong can result in an agency going into administration, so never hesitate to give us a call.
The IPA has helped support my agency from when it was a start up. They have guided us in terms of business models, best practice and staff development to ensure that although we are a small agency, we reflect the industry standard.
