Payroll Management

Studio+: Working with U.S. and Canada Projects for Payroll

If your organization has productions in both U.S. and Canada, it’s important that the correct organization is selected when receiving your files from payroll.

Check out all of our Studio+ courses in EDGE On-Demand.

A Canadian organization in Studio+ can be differentiated from a U.S. organization by its suffix (the abbreviations after the name), which coincides with Cast & Crew's Canadian Payroll.

Suffix key:

  • US organizations will not have a suffix
  • VANCA = Vancouver Canadian Dollar​
  • VANUS = Vancouver US Dollar​
  • TORCA = Toronto Canadian Dollar​
  • TORUS = Toronto US Dollar


Favorite Folder

To navigate to the correct Cast & Crew Payroll folder, we recommend favoriting the correct FROM Cast and Crew folder that corresponds to your Canadian or U.S. payroll. This will allow it to display on your homepage once logged in and you can hover over it to quickly view its directory path.

To do this:

  1. Log in to Studio+.
  2. Click the organization name and navigate to the FROM Cast and Crew folder.
  3. Click the flag on the right of the row to favorite the folder.
  4. The folder will now be displayed on your homepage so you can easily navigate to it.
  5. Hover over a favorited folder on the homepage to see its entire directory path (i.e., the parent folders the folder is nested under).

When working on a project that has payroll in both Canada and the U.S., make sure to check the organization name (specifically its suffix) so that you're selecting the correct folder that corresponds to your Canadian or U.S. payroll.
