WORLDSTARS INTERNATIONAL LIMITED
TERMS OF BUSINESS
Terms of Business as of 20th May 2016
1) Worldstars International may act as an Employment Agency or as an Employment Business, at its sole discretion. The way in which Worldstars International is acting for each booking will be clearly shown in the documentation issued.
2) When acting as an Employment Agency:
a) Worldstars International acts as negotiator only and is not a party to the resulting contract. For this reason Worldstars International cannot accept responsibility for non-fulfillment or breach of any such contract, but every reasonable safeguard is assured. Wherever possible in such cases, Worldstars International will make every reasonable effort to replace the artist or engagement with one of similar price and quality.
b) Worldstars International seeks to negotiate agreements for The Artist in those branches of the entertainment field for which The Artist is suited by reason of his talent and ability.
c) For the provision of this service Worldstars International charges a fee equivalent to an agreed percentage of the contracted fee receivable by the Artist, in accordance with our Commission Policy Statement. Worldstars International will also collect any applicable tax (for example VAT) which is due under English Law. The charge may be made to either the Artist or Promoter subject to the negotiated acceptance of the party in question.
d) The Fee (commission) is charged only after the provision of the service has been completed. Therefore there is no provision for a refund of commission in any circumstances. The document " Commission Policy " forms part of these terms and shall be provided to artists, and must be read and construed as such.
e) Where charged to the Artist, the fee (commission) will still be due if the Artist fails to appear, said non-appearance being as a result of any action or inaction of the Artist.
f) Cancellation of any contract negotiated through Worldstars International is not normally possible without the agreement of all concerned parties. In the event of cancellation by either party without cause of illness or other unavoidable circumstances, Worldstars International reserves the right to levy a charge of up to 15% (+ VAT) of the agreed fee against the canceling party, to cover the additional expenses involved in the said cancellation. This is in addition to any amounts that may be payable by either party under the terms of the said contract.
g) Worldstars International normally acts as negotiator only and as such may not enter into agreements on behalf of third parties. If at any time Worldstars International is authorised to enter into agreements on behalf of the Artist or the Client for any individual booking, such authority will be made known to both parties during the negotiation.
h) Worldstars International may receive fees due to the Artist (for example in the event of a no pickup booking or in the course of arriving at a dispute resolution) but must account to the Artist for any such payments that it receives.
i) Agreements are made separately for each booking, and there is no requirement for any Artist to accept any booking offered. The Artist can therefore end the relationship by simply not accepting any further bookings and the Agent can end the relationship by not offering any such bookings.
k) If any Artist seeking employment under a normal non-exclusive agency representation agreement (i.e. who has not signed under a management or sole representation contract) should wish to cease being represented by Worldstars International and have their name and details removed from any promotional materials issued by the Agency they can give a minimum of 30 days notice in writing. From that point no further promotional materials featuring the Artist will be created, but it must be understood that it is not possible to remove information from hard copy products already published.
j) The Artist will be required to honour any and all contracts negotiated and accepted prior to the expiry of such written notice. The Artist must undertake to ensure that any ongoing commission or other financial remuneration due is paid to Worldstars International promptly and in accordance with these Terms of Business.
3) When acting as an Employment Business:
a) Worldstars International is a party to each contract and accepts responsibility for its obligations under the terms of each individual agreement including the obligation to pay the contracted fee to the Artist when it is due. In this context, Worldstars International is responsible to the contracting client for the delivery of the service.
b) The fee payable to the Artist will be that fee agreed by him or her and duly indicated in the contract.
c) No charge other than the contracted fee is made.
d) The Artist will be employed under a contract for services.
e) Any contract entered into between Worldstars International and the Artist will be for an agreed period (normally one performance) and will not provide for cancellation by either party other than by mutual agreement.
f) Since the Artist will be either self-employed or an incorporated body there is no entitlement to Holiday Pay or any payment in lieu thereof.
4) Commission and monies owed to Worldstars International shall be remitted as otherwise stated in the written confirmation. Worldstars International reserves the right to deduct monies owed to the agency by any individual Artist from any monies due to that Artist and to forward any balance.
