  • Notice

    Advertising Agency Commission changes: changes to the Competitions Act were gazetted 22nd April and effective 1st May has made it illegal to collude on a standard agency commission. As a consequence the 16.5% as an industry standard falls away. Media24, magazines, newspapers and online via SpaceStation, have issued revised ratecards effective 1st May which reduces all rates to net and excludes any commission. These revised rates are included in Media Manager. Caxtons have increased their agency commission to 17%, subject to conditions, effective 1st May but with no change to asking rate. Caxton Magazines in Media Manager reflect this new level wef 1st May. United Stations have also increased their commission to 17%, with conditions, with no change to rates. Independent Newspapers are not making any change at this stage. Times Media are due to make an announcement shortly. Other groups are yet to formally respond to Media Manager.
