Liza Soberano made a huge revelation on how much she was earning during her career as an actress in the Philippines.
In an interview with Boy Abunda, Liza said that she only gets around 30-40% of her salary because of the commissions and taxes she was paying.
She bared the breakdown of commissions deducted from her by her former talent manager Ogie Diaz, aunt Joni and Star Magic.
“I started with him [Diaz] at 2012 and then up until year 2015 or 2016 which was when I was seventeen thirty percent po ‘yung commission niya sa akin, my Tita Joni was taking twenty percent and Star Magic was taking ten percent.” said Liza.
“I also pay US taxes alongside my Philippine taxes because I’m a US citizen and a Filipino citizen so my total take home was around thirty percent,” she added.
Because of too much deduction, Liza said that her managers decided to lessen the commissions because they saw how hardworking she is.
“My Tita Joni was started feeling bad for me that that was the situation so nag-usap po sila ni Tito Ogie na bawasan na lang ‘yung commissions nila from me because they felt that I deserve more since I was putting in a lot of work.” she stated.
“So eventually naging twenty percent na lang po si Tito Ogie, and si Tita Joni naging fifteen percent tapos ‘yung bawas niya was after Tito Ogie would take his commission and Star Magic was still at ten percent pero ang Star Magic po hindi kumukuha ng commission if it’s money coming from ABS-CBN so ang money po galing sa teleserye, sa movies, hindi po sila kumukuha ng commission its just from endorsements,” she added.
Her commissions before were too big compared to the deductions she was receiving from her new management.
“My only manager right now in the Philippines is Careless and they’re taking the same amount that Tito Ogie was taking and I have no one else taking anything from me so my total take home now is eighty percent which I think is fair,” she said.
