Transferring to a new royalty accounting program is not for the faint of heart! Curve has made the transition as easy as it could be. Royalty accounting is a special kind of accounting that takes precision and understanding of the nuances of publishing and label agreements. Curve Services, and Sidd specifically, have made the matching of works and processing of statements easy, painless, and accurate. Speaking from experience with two other accounting programs where we had both outsourced services and integrated services, I can confidently say that the services offered by Curve are top tier. My company has some complicated royalty splits and Sidd is always able to help figure out the most difficult ones! He has a solution for everything.  My writers and artists love the portal and transparency of the accounting. If you’re looking to switch software or need some help with the actual accounting, I can’t recommend Curve enough!

We’ve been very happy working with Curve and find the platform intuitive and comprehensive. There are times, however, when certain DSP data or client statement comparisons can be very complicated, and it’s always good to know we have access to Curve Services, which provides us the expert advice needed to handle issues in a timely fashion. Working on an as-needed basis, Sidd and his team provide a high level of service which we always know we can rely on.

We offer one-off or ongoing services, whether you would like us to handle a specific task or your full royalty accounting processes, without the need to commit. There are no recurring fees—instead, we calculate your fees based on the hours of work we've done, which you will always have insight into. There are no preset limits, no retainers, and no minimum fees. We aim to keep it simple and transparent: you decide what tasks you need help with; we track the hours it takes to execute those tasks; you pay an hourly fee for the hours worked, in half-hour increments.
