One of the most time consuming and tedious parts of running an independent company is handling the pluses and minuses, undoubtedly; it is perhaps the most important aspect of a business as well.
Caffeine’s affordable accounting system gives you the option to handle the heavy load within minutes! Stop paying for complicated systems that are not designed for your real needs and stop hiring overpaid accountants that do not handle your work in a timely manner.
How it works
Caffeine is compatible with royalty statements from any store and any distributor (or you can create your own), in any currency, in xls, xlsx, csv or txt format. Once uploaded, you can review the royalties that are included in the Statement, and edit or remove any that you don’t want to be included.
Our unique “pre-allocation” method allows you to set up releases and “splits” in advance so our system can recognize them either by UPC, ISRC code or a combination of the catalogue number/artist name/track name/mix to automate the process for any future uploads.
If you have uploaded royalty statements before our system will recognize previously used matches so next time you process a statement, you will spend less and less time doing your accounting and more and more time doing enjoying any of your hobbies.
Paid an advance? Need to add an expense? Recently sub-licensed any of your music? We give the tools to handle any additional income or deals, give your artists a transparent insight into how their music is doing. Whether you have a small up and coming or a large-scale label, we have the tools you need!
How Much Does It Cost
We take a small 20% fee from your net royalties. There are no other costs and we promise you won’t find a better deal anywhere else.
What are the benefits?
In addition to our Premium Distribution tools, each label accepted for Premium Distribution will be given free access to our promotion, accounting and demo management tools, a saving of almost $480.00 USD each year
How do I get paid
We send royalty reports monthly (within the first week of each month) – you can request payment by Paypal, Bank Transfer or Check / Cheque at anytime once you have met the minimum payment threshold of $100.00 USD.
Do you provide UPC / ISRC Codes?
Yes we do and we don’t charge you a penny for them, or you can use your own if you prefer
