What is a loan-out?
A loan-out typically means an individual has formed a business and has an EIN. When paying a loan-out, they will be classified as a contractor, receive a 1099-MISC against their EIN, and no employer payroll withholdings will be owed.
It is also worth noting that minors who are actors in NY, CA, LA and NM who also have a loan out will be expected to make their own deposits to their Coogan Trust accounts.
When hiring an employee, how do taxes work?
When one pays an employee, states and the federal government require employers and employees to pay taxes.
For instance, if an employer pays an employee $1,000 in gross wages - the employer may owe $150 in employer taxes and the employee may owe $100 in employee taxes. This means that the employer will pay out $1,150 and the employee will receive $900. Then, all the taxes are sent to state and federal governments.
We recommend estimating your payroll to get a precise idea of how much employer tax to expect.
Does Wrapbook support unionized payroll?

Does Wrapbook handle IRS reporting?
Yes! Wrapbook automatically handles all state and federal payroll reporting on your behalf including, but not limited to, state unemployment, W2s, and 1099s.
How does the setup fee work?
The setup fee is a one time fee per company. Once you pay the fee and signup your company, you will not owe any additional fees until processing payroll or purchasing other services.
Does Wrapbook require a payroll bond?
No, Wrapbook does not require a payroll bond.
How do the processing fees work?
Wrapbook charges 0.75% of all payments. This includes paying W2 employees, contractors, loan-outs, or for expense reimbursements? For instance, if you pay someone $1,000 for labor and $50 for a kit fee then the fee would be 0.75% x $1,500 = $7.5.
You only pay processing fees based on what you process. If you don’t use Wrapbook for a month, year, etc then you won’t owe any processing fees.
Does Wrapbook support expense reimbursement?
Yes! If you hire an individual and they have a kit fee, you can pay the individual for their labor and separately reimburse them for their expense.
What payment methods does Wrapbook support?
We support direct deposit to US bank accounts and mail paper-based checks within the USA.
What is the user experience like for being paid?
For the vast majority of new users, they are excited that it only takes ~120 seconds on-board. Then, they love being able to track the status of their payments and ultimately get paid quickly.
How long does it take for someone to get paid?
It takes 2-4 business days for someone to receive payment from the time the payroll is processed by employer. If someone elects to receive a paper check, it will take longer for the check to be received through the mail.
How should I budget for all of this?
The easiest way to budget for people on a production is to break it down into a number of estimates:
- Estimate how much you will pay each person in gross wages.
- Classify everyone by union membership, non-union employees, and contractors.
- Add on union dues, payroll withholdings, workers compensation insurance, and processing fees per classification.
- Total all gross wages, union dues, payroll withholdings, workers compensation insurance, and processing fees.
