ARTIST ENGAGEMENT SERVICES
URTA offers the only nonprofit paymaster service of its kind, setting the stage for hiring professional guest artists at universities, theatres of all sizes, development labs, cultural institutions, and even supports individual artists producing their own work. URTA takes on full Employer of Record duties including tax reporting, pension/health contributions, workers compensation, and more.
Standing relationships with theatrical unions allow URTA to operate as Producer of Record for union contracts, bringing professionals to colleges and training programs that might otherwise be restricted in engaging union artists.
Our service is open to member and non-member institutions, available in all fifty states, and processes over a million dollars in artist earnings annually.
