Traveling to Nigeria for a shoot... wait, are you covered?

Christine Sadofsky, Integro
Filming internationally requires lots of planning for the production teams and especially if the trip is to an area where there is civil unrest and security is necessary. It would be tragic for the trip to occur and for someone to be injured to discover that no one notified the international insurance underwriter and the domestic insurance policy is excluding the loss. It is so important to notify your international insurance company underwriter about the trip BEFORE you leave to be certain everyone is covered. The international insurance or foreign insurance policy provides for Foreign General Liability (injury to third parties), Foreign Workers Compensation (injury to your workers) and Foreign Auto (when you rent vehicles). DON'T WAIT until you return because in most cases, coverage will not be backdated and especially if there was a loss.
MMG continues to grow!

Maslow Media Group is pleased to announce that it has been named one of Washington Business Journal's Fastest Growing Companies of 2015!
How to Leverage Technology to Alleviate ACA Reporting Requirements

Adam Moise, Barney & Barney

For most companies with more than 50 full-time or full-time equivalent employees, 2016 will bring significant new Internal Revenue Service employer reporting requirements.

The goal of the IRS: To ensure that your employees maintained health insurance coverage in 2015, in addition to verifying that required employers offered coverage to full-time employees, as mandated by the "Affordable Care Act" (ACA).

Preparation is the key to managing this additional workload brought on by the ACA, which impact your HR, finance and payroll teams. Planning is critical if you want to avoid a potentially sizable penalty. Employers may be fined up to $1.5 million for failing to report the proper information to the government.
