Entertainment Partners has gained a new affiliate to offer payroll and production incentive services to the entertainment industry in Puerto Rico.

As an affiliate, Pay1Bill Film Services has renamed itself EP Puerto Rico. The firm opened in 2001 and over the years grew to make entertainment-related services its primary business line. Founder Joe Allen Garcia will stay with the company.

Entertainment Partners, headquartered in Burbank, added the affiliate in Puerto Rico because of increased film and television production in the region, said President and Chief Executive Mark Goldstein.

“Joe and his team bring the unparalleled expertise and service for which EP is known,” Goldstein said in a prepared statement.
