While you may be involved in a back-end rebate program, a return credit program or a pre-end discount program, there is always room to improve your management of these processes and address some of the key issues that prevent you from maximizing the program`s actual expected benefits. One of the main ways to do this is the introduction of special discount management software for your business and the automation of laborious administration processes that provide resources for improving the benefits of discount programs in the years to come. Interestingly, and perhaps surprisingly, the existence of back-end or back-end loans suggests that some companies are facing “front-end” or “front-end” loans. I never successfully concluded a casting deal with an actor who contained points (a percentage of the winnings) on the back-end. That`s not to say that this can`t happen with these low-budget independent movies, it`s just that most of the filmmakers I`ve worked with seem to prefer the blocked amount of the single bonus. This gives producers a little more control when it comes to the conversation they will eventually have with potential distributors. If they can provide a flat dollar as a “deferral pool” (to borrow a term used by Matthew during last week`s panel) instead of a percentage of all future earnings, sales are more attractive and the deal is more likely. However, if you`re negotiating a deal on a project with a bigger budget than I`ve done so far (my “biggest” movie casting was on a $2.5 million feature), the points may be easier to sell. With this large resource exclusively devoted to the precise affirmation of funds due, many companies are unable or unable to use more resources to analyze agreements that allow for full understanding of net net margins per site or product line. Without this information, you will never be fully ready to enter into negotiations and will not be able to ensure that you get the maximum benefits and increase the amount owed in the future.
A discount is a retroactive financial payment – which is recognized as having on your accounts – that is used as an incentive to increase revenue growth, without simply reducing the price indicated by a discount. Unlike discounts, discounts are granted on payment and usually at the end of the agreement. For this reason, some sectors use the concepts of back-end discounts and back-end funds. There are unlimited possibilities to structure and define these agreements for participations. The agreements on interest will be very different depending on the experience, the influence and the particular buzz around the parties and the project. Although despite the leverage of talent, they will sometimes take much less in their pre-payment fees, but also in interest, so that the project can be carried out on a tight budget. As a profit participant, there are two types of basic equity definitions that you can expect, either a share in net income or a share in the gross margin on revenue generated. Gross participation or conditional compensation based on a percentage of gross revenue of 1.Dollar is the highest level of participation you can negotiate.
