We are committed to making the scouting and booking process as transparent as possible. Here are some fees that are sometimes overlooked:

  • Viewing Deposit:
    There is a nominal amount (dependent on the city) collected when you make a viewing request that is credited back when you book the space.
  • Taxes on Service Fees:
    Set Scouter only collects tax on services fees for bookings in Canada. All US location rental rates are tax-exempt.
  • Security Deposit:
    A deposit collected prior to production day and held during the production. They’re typically $1000 per production day. Certain properties or productions may require a larger security deposit.
  • Overtime Penalty:
    Overtime penalties are claimed at the location’s discretion and are incurred once a production begins or continues outside the the agreed upon booking hours.
  • Damage Transfer Fee:
    In case of damage claims, producers are charged a 15% transfer fee on the total amount collected.
  • Off Platform Penalty Fee:
    If a user circumvents Set Scouter, a penalty fee will be charged to the default payment method associated with the user's account.

If you need clarification on viewing deposits, taxes, or security deposits, please contact your account manager or email help@setscouter.com
