We have worked with Justin Gourlay a few times and each time our experience has been amazing because we learn so much from him and we are always confident that our payroll is handled with a great deal of attention to detail. We trust ABS because their actions support their reputation! We will continue to work with ABS in the future!

I have worked with ABS Payroll on many, many projects. They are incredibly kind, informative, they will help you through the process all the way. I've done small micro-budget films with them, larger budget films, tv series, and they are incredible every time. Justin and Kris always make sure my production is taken care of and are fast, reliable, and on point. They are my first call and I tell everyone I know who is looking for a payroll company to go to ABS.

ABS and our representative provided unparalleled service. They made the process simple and were able to turn around payroll and make complex documentation a breeze. I highly recommend them to anyone needing production services.

ABS Payroll provided amazing service! Our rep Justin Gourlay was always there to provide answers to any questions we had and he always went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly! Working with ABS made our experience effortless and we will definitely be working with them again! We highly recommend ABS to producers, you will be in the best hands with your film! Thank you Justin and everyone at ABS!!

ABS Payroll was wonderful to work with! They are organized and communicate extremely well. Once I was put in touch with our ABS representative, I was able to reach her throughout any working day with our questions and concerns. I always received prompt answers. They made the payroll process with SAG-AFTRA very easy. I was pleased to see that the president of the company, Kris King, reached out to me personally regarding my employees when we had to submit injury reports and get them treatment after we wrapped. I always felt like we were in great hands with ABS Payroll and can't recommend the company enough. I will definitely work with ABS on my next film!

Sarah and Kris were outstanding. I have been working in the film/television industry for 15 years. I finally had the opportunity to run payroll for my crew. I was so impressed with how easy the whole process was. Really impressed with ABS and I look forward to using them again!
Review by Jaakobus Kinnaman1 year ago
My experience with ABS Payroll was fantastic, and I strongly recommend their services. In the fall of 2017 I served as PM on my first narrative feature, and it was my first time working with SAG and a payroll company after years of working on lots of smaller non-union projects.
Throughout the project, SAG proved to be far and away the most disorganized, bureaucratic, and unhelpful organization that I have ever encountered. But every step of the way, Jason Alexander and his team at ABS Paryoll went above and beyond to offer some of the best service I have received anywhere. They were ultra-responsive and friendly, and provided an easy-to-use online portal for document sharing and review.
As a client with a small payroll to fulfill, I expected many times for them to be dismissive or slow to respond, knowing that they have lots of bigger fish clients to serve. But they made themselves available by phone and email readily, and were friendly and helpful long after I expected them to begin to blow me off. My most sincere thanks to Jason and his team.

ABS were there with us every step of the way. They were prompt in their work, polite, patient. Their professionalism and attention to detail made us feel that we are not only being provided a high-quality service but are also taken care of.
I would love to work with them again on many more projects to come.

Jason Alexander was amazing. I would recommend ABS to anyone who needs payroll! A perfect fit for our little production. I will definitely be coming back! Thank you again!
Review by Hakanas1 year ago
My insurance broker recommended Kris King & ABS, and I wasn’t quite sure if I would be willing to try a new payroll company... I then did a little research and discovered they were a subsidiary of BONDIT, a company I was familiar with; and who have a stellar reputation in feature film financing... so I gave it a shot. Well I could not be happier with their better than competitive pricing; along with how easy they made the arduous task of payroll. Tharsis, our paymaster, was meticulous while still being a joy to work with... I highly recommend giving ABS your union and/or non-union entertainment projects!

I'm an independent film producer, often dealing with small budgets and little help. I have been working with ABS for a few years now. They are one of the most reliable, trustworthy, and stress free vendors that I deal with on a regular basis. I definitely recommend talking to them about any payroll needs! I only wish they handled residuals!

Justin provided first rate support via phone and email both during production and post-production. His patience and attention to detail were superb. Learned a lot and will apply to the next project with ABS.

ABS was the perfect partner in producing our first SAG Indie; they took all the angst of payroll and reporting off of our shoulders so we could focus on the production. We look forward to building on our relationship with future projects.
Review by Krutesh Derrow2 years ago
We're a commercial production company, and ABS's people rocked it. They walked us through the process, were always available during production as our shoot schedule changed, and did not overcharge for their services. We'll work with them again.
Review by Custopeter2 years ago
ABS kept the process simple. Every step of the way they gave explicit instructions for newcomers, were available for questions and always followed thru.
Review by Anila2 years ago
We had a VERY difficult show - very low budget with tons of cast and extras. Not to mention almost every single contract was done incorrectly. Jason was super patient and understanding throughout the entire process and really went above and beyond.
Review by Samfrano2 years ago
Our experience with ABS has been a great one! They were always attentive and very professional. We will certainly use them again on our next feature.
Review by Anudhan Heyland2 years ago
The customer service was excellent, they went above and beyond made me feel really comfortable. My reps name was Jason I must've called him at least 15 times he took all of my calls answered all of my questions and made sure I understood everything before we hung up. Definitely will be using them in the future. 10 Stars if it were available!!!

I enlisted ABS' help with the SAG payroll of my tiny budget short film, and they were detailed, quick to respond, knowledgable, and a delight to work with. I would recommend them to anyone.

ABS has always been a great support in the productions we've done with then.
Keep coming to them and never regret.
More to come!

The staff at ABS were very helpful with payroll questions and feedback for a small independent film.
Review by Ayem2 years ago
ABS Payroll was amazing to work with! They were very responsive and always there to answer any questions I had and to provide insight. We were a New York Production, and our clerk was stations in Los Angeles. The time difference was no hinderance and actually gave us a little bit more time in the morning to finish submitting, and more time at the end of the day if there were any questions or for approvals. Very convenient! Would definitely work with them again.
