Business Services’ Participations, Residuals & Royalties

Manage your entire cycle of processing participations and residuals with our comprehensive outsourcing service customised for the media and entertainment industry.

Shifting focus to participations and residuals


In a rapidly evolving sector, media and entertainment companies must capitalise on revenue-generating opportunities, while controlling cost and quality. Until now, they have focused on channels, content and consumer demand, but several factors suggest they should shift their focus to participations and residuals:

  • Decreasing incremental revenue and piracy
  • Ageing processes unable to cope with increased volume
  • Financial complexity due to new markets, channels, partners and devices
  • Outdated reporting that fails to highlight problems impacting talent, liability and working capital
  • Audit backlogs that complicate negotiations and increase chances of claims 

Participations and residuals were traditionally handled in-house, but industry pressures are forcing media and entertainment companies to seek out new solutions.
