Ubu Accounts Procedures:
dated 11/13/88, amended 09/07/95
- In principle, & as a goal, per diems will be paid by the
week & in advance each Sunday. This certainly will be the case
- Payment of wages on a regular & weekly basis is the goal.
Sunday will be payday for the week passed. Cash flow undoubtedly
will determine the practicality of this plan.
- Payment of advances on salary, if weekly wage payments are up
to date, will be paid only if it's convenient for Accounts.
- Floats will be reconciled weekly & on Sundays.
- Each person is responsible for his own hotel 'extras'
(personal telephone charges, room service, etc.), including any
bills normally reimbursed from Accounts. Extras should be paid at
least 30 minutes before departure time to allow the Road Manager
to settle up the group's hotel account with a minimum of
- If the bus departure time from the hotel is set for 9 am this
means that all musicians & road personnel should on the bus
for that time. Paying extras, eating breakfast, all things must be
accomplished before that time.
- When flying with the entire band & equipment, check-in
times at the airport are as follows: no later than two hours for
international flights, and 90 minutes for domestic flights.
- It is the individual's responsibility to know departure times
- A single invoice must not demand reimbursement from more than
one project and each demand must be clearly identified as to which
project it's being directed.
- Receipts must be submitted. It is the responsibility of the
individual to obtain receipts. No tickee no takee.
- Payment is based on a seven day week. Partial weeks are paid
according to the formula: x/7 multiplied by the weekly fee. The
first day of the first week begins the authorized day of departure
from place of residence. The last day of the last full or partial
week paid is the day of return to place of residence according to
the Tour Schedule.
- If a musician or road technician "leaves the tour" all
travel/hotel costs incurred by that individual during such time
are the sole responsibility of that individual. This includes any
& all costs incurred because of unexpected changes in the tour
itinerary, cancellations, breakdowns, etc. "Leaving the tour"
means the making of independent travel or accommodation plans. See
the specific protocol.
If a musician or road technician joins an Ubu tour from another
tour, or leaves an Ubu tour for another tour, then only half
the relevant travel costs are payable by Ubu Projex. The same
principle applies to recording sessions. In no case will Ubu
Projex pay travel costs exceeding the amount it would have paid
had such individual traveled to or from his place of residence.
For the purposes of Ubu Accounts a person is allowed only
one place of residence.
- As a rule, the English pound is the official currency of
non-US tours. The Tour Accountant is not responsible for providing
local currencies for personal needs. This is the sole
responsibility of the individual. From time to time he may offer
the service as a matter of convenience. In such case, the rate at
which he will offer the exchange is the London bank rate. That
rate is determined by the best rate available in London.
From time to time a wage & per diem rate will be set. The
rate will consist of two figures, one in pounds & one in
dollars. The pound to dollar conversion will reflect the
exchange rate going at the time of budgeting for a particular
project. Once set the rate pertains through the course of the
project regardless of subsequent exchange rate fluctuations.
If a project is budgeted in dollars then individuals are
paid dollars. If a project is budgeted in pounds then
individuals are paid pounds or pound equivalents in foreign
- Where possible, musicians & road technicians will be paid
in home currency but only if such currency is in the possession of
the Tour Accountant. If convenient, Ubu Projex will act as banker
at the end of a tour to effect currency exchanges. No such
exchange will be made or authorized, however, until tour accounts
have been completed & an analysis of the practicality of
making such an exchange undertaken. This minimizes cross
accounting & ensures that such currency exchanges do not cause
cash flow problems or unnecessary partnership conversions.
Ubu Projex will happily convert pounds to $s at the best
possible rate (it's always better to do this in London and not
in the US!) on the last day of the tour - but it is your
responsibility to co-ordinate this with UP. This is outside the
tour budget (you give me cash currency I give you $s). Very
important: Avoid exchanging any foreign currency in the US.
Avoid having excesses of non pounds (francs and marks etc)
as you lose on the exchange rate if you convert in London to
$s. Most coins are NOT exchangeable.
Often the best idea is to exchange pocket money at borders.
This is the only guaranteed place to exchange coins. Avoid
double exchanges. If you're on the German side of the
German-Danish border and you want to exchange krone for Belgian
francs then the border bank will first exchange it to dmarks
and then the dmarks to Belgian francs, taking a commission each

>what are floats?
A float is a chunk of money put into someone's care for the
purpose of paying expenses. For example: two vehicles. Tour manager
in one, road crew or band member in the other, each has a float to
take care of expenses. At the end of a period of time, accounts are
settled. Receipts and balance of cash handed over.
>you mentioned cabs, are we really to be reimbur. for cabs?
If you are instructed to take a cab for the purposes of the tour,
then, yes. Personal use for convenience, no.
>what can we be reimbu. for?
Authorized expenses that involve the function of the tour is the
