This page sets out our policy with regard to payment for live performances. Please take time to read all of the information and related links carefully, and note that we do not require a set list for all live events.
In those cases where a set list is required, submitting full details of your members' live performances by email will help us to investigate your claims as efficiently as possible.
Royalty payment for a live performance depends on the type of venue where the performance took place.
Please use our Premises Search to determine which category applies for a given venue. To search for a venue, simply enter at least two of the five search criteria.
*Events are selected randomly, using software designed to produce a statistically valid sample.
Where the submission of a set list is required, please check that the works performed are registered on our database.
If the relevant works do not appear on our database, please ensure that your email includes either a Fast-Track reference or fiche for each title. Failure to do so may delay payment.
Please note, the top row shows the month the performance took place. The second row shows the target distribution payment month.
For example - if the performance took place in May, then any due royalty will be paid the following October. If the event was not featured in our survey, however, it will not generate a royalty in this or any subsequent distribution.
