With more and more clients engaging the services of payroll companies to pay talent on-site for jobs, agencies are increasingly needing to charge talent for their commissions once they have been paid in full.

In some cases, the agency may also need to invoice the client for their agency fees only.

Syngency's new Payroll options (under Details > Invoice in a booking) provide a quick, easy way of generating invoices to clients and talent (for agency fees and commissions respectively).

These short videos explain how Payroll Modes are used with our Xero integration, to create invoices for different payroll situations. The same behaviour applies to our QuickBooks integration also.

Introduction to Payroll Bookings

A quick overview of the standard Xero/QuickBooks behaviour, where you would create a full invoice to the client, and bill to each of the talent on the job:

Payroll – Client (Agency Fee only)

Creates an invoice to the client for the agency fee only, and standard bills to each of the talent.

Payroll – Client & Talent (Agency Fee & Talent Commission only)

Creates an invoice to the client for the agency fee only, and invoices to each of the talent for their agency commission only.

Payroll - Talent (Talent Commission only)


Creates a standard invoice to the client, with invoices to each of the talent for their agency commission only.
