I need advice about a client leaving my agency or joining from another agency.

Please refer to the PMA Code of Conduct which can be downloaded in the Members Area (see Documents/PMA Documents).

The PMA Code contains additional notes for Artists’ agents regarding commission split and lays out our recommendations regarding a client moving from one agent to another, including the use of protected projects letters and any commission splits.  It also outlines our position on notice period.

Finally remember that any conflict over a client’s terms of business with their previous agent is a legal matter between the artist and their previous agent.

 

 

NON-MEMBERS

I want to join the PMA but I don't know know any PMA members.

As a membership organisation references from two PMA members agencies is an essential part of your application. We do not accept references from other industry professionals.

I am setting up a new agency - do I have to be a PMA member?

No, you do not have to be a PMA member.   You have a legal requirement to be compliant with the Employment Agencies Act 1973.

The PMA is a membership organisation, not a regulatory body.  However if you are looking for good practice advice you might find it useful our Code of Conduct useful which you will find in the “Join Us page of this website.

I am not a PMA member - can I place an advert on your website?

Sorry! Our Vacancies Board is a benefit for PMA member agencies only.  We do not post any adverts from non-members.

ARTISTS-WRITERS-DIRECTORS

I am looking for an agent. Can the PMA advise?

We do not offer advice about finding an agent.  An agent-client relationship is an important and personal relationship and we feel that requires direct research. Most agencies will tell you on their websites what they do, who they are looking for and how to approach them.    If you want to check whether an agency is a PMA member please see the list below.

I want to make a formal complaint about my agent / former agent

The PMA is a membership organisation, not a regulatory body.  As such we have no jurisdiction over our members and do not have a formal complaints procedure.

If your concern relates to the PMA Code of Conduct please remember this needs to be considered in conjunction with the agency agreement you made with your agent/former agent.

You may also find that your union or guild (Equity or the Writers’ Guild) may be a better placed to deal with any formal concerns.
