Ensure you get fair reward for your musical efforts and do not leave things to chance.

Invoice your engager promptly and professionally and prevent those who owe you money from taking advantage  of your goodwill. You are in a business and will not survive if you cannot collect debts promptly.

Some agents, managers and engagers might benefit from those who fail to handle such issues.

If you are not paid as required, then our legal services are designed to assist you.
