Our GDS commission structure
We use the globally accepted WPS (World Payment System) as the medium by which we make commission payments to our travel agents. As you are aware, payments are made only after the client has checked out of our hotel. We will also appreciate it if our agents will allow 30 days between client check-out and commission remittance.
The taxation authorities of certain nations require that we deduct withholding tax from the payments we remit to our agents. In order to comply with national regulations in this respect, we trust our agents will appreciate that we have no option other than to make such deductions. We will, however, supply all relevant tax certification in respect of any deductions made, while our accounts department will be pleased to assist with any queries in this regard.
Working together for the future
Our accounts team remains dedicated towards providing immediate response to any queries our agents may have. In the interests of ensuring instant clarification, however, we would like to supply a list of rapid response contacts for commission queries. They are as follows:
