Are you a voluntary organisation running a community building?
We offer joint licences with another UK collecting society, PPL, which collects and distributes licence fees on behalf of performers and record companies.

We have tariffs which cover most charities and community groups.
Please note, we have a separate tariff for primary and secondary schools which includes music used by not-for-profit community groups with up to 40 audience members, at no extra charge to the school or community group.
However, if you are a third party holding an event with more than 40 audience members in a school please contact us directly.
We also offer discounts for small charity and community events, and have separate guidelines for carnivals and parades.
Large ticketed events and any church or religious building that hosts more than six concerts or recitals per year should contact us directly.
Christian churches, church halls and Christian bookshops are (with certain exceptions) licensed on our behalf through Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). Please contact the CCLI to find out more.
For businesses and office premises run by charities, our standard tariff charges apply. Please find your specific sector here.
Are there any exemptions?
There are limited circumstances where, at our discretion, we choose not to charge for our licence. Please see our policy regarding the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations. Read our charging policies.
