APA Music Masterclass | Report and Guide

In June the APA hosted the Music Masterclass, where experts from the music production industry spoke on a range of topics that would help agencies and production companies get the most out of the music they use and the relatioships they have with those they work with on it. 

In case you weren't able to make it, we've put together a report on the key ideas and themes shared through out the day, which can be found here

We hope you find it useful.

APA Audio Post Group Meeting | Tues 19th July, 9am

Please email if you are able to come along.


A Guide to the Auto-Enrolment Pensions Scheme

Under the Pensions Act 2008, the laws surrounding workplace pensions has changed. Employers in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it.

Each business has its own staging date i.e. date by which it must comply with the new regs. Some of you have already have that and have compliance in hand, many of you have not had your staging date.
We looked at introducing an advisor to you, to set the pension scheme up for your business. Jelf offer clear advice at a reasonable fixed cost based on the level of service you require.

We investigated the possibility of having one pension for everyone registered to a pension scheme run by an APA member co, so employees who moved around during their career might have one pension, rather than many small ones. That could happen if each company decided, in consultation with its staff, to use the default pension scheme called NEST but it might not suit every company to do that.

To help APA members through the process, the Jelf Group have 2 streamlined options to make this as easy as possible. All info HERE



Due to popular demand, we've agreed to extend the deadline for APA Show 2016 submissions until Friday 15th July.

Also, in important new information, we will be accepting submissions with a 'first aired' date of anything up to Friday 15th July 2016.

Get your entries in now at - this really is your last chance!
