Which LOML is right for your service?

The scheme is also available for services making General Entertainment content available in the UK. A summary of all service types and fees can be found in the summary terms and conditions.
How much does it cost?
Annual licences start at £122 +VAT, the actual rates depend on the type of service and the level of music usage. You can find out more information by downloading the summary terms and conditions.
If you know you will only use music for part of the year you can choose to be charged pro-rata for the relevant months, down to a minimum charge of £61+VAT. Please note we cannot issue refunds if you pay for your licence and then change your plans.
Application process and reporting
Once you have selected the right licence for your service you can apply online. There is no music reporting required but you will need to submit a usage declaration form after 12 months.
Apply for your licence online
PRS for Music offers licences for the use of musical works on behalf of music publishers. You must also seek a licence from the company that owns the sound recording of that musical work – usually a record company. Please contact Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) in order to establish who owns the sound recording that you would like to use.
