In situations like the following, you may want to deduct money from what is owed to a payee on a royalty statement:
- Where royalties only pay out after the author advance and legal fees have been recovered
- Where royalties only pay out after the author advance and ghostwriter fees have been recovered
Go to the contract page and click the Add button in the Publishing Fees section.
Fill in the form, then click save. Do not fill in the paid date and the paid amount if you want to offset that cost against royalties. Fill them in if, alternatively, you receive an actual payment for the amount.
The fee will appear as a line on the royalty statement for the payer, using the words you provided on the publishing fees form.
