Am I eligible to make a claim for a live performance?

If you are a PRS member we would strongly encourage you to report all live performances of your music to us as soon as possible. To be eligible for royalties you need to make sure: 

  • You were a PRS member at the time of performance* 
  • You’re reporting a performance within the right timeframe (please see next question). 
  • Your music was played live (e.g. the broadcast of recorded music wouldn’t qualify as a live performance)

*Depending on which half of the year your application was processed in, we consider you to have been a member from 1 January or 1 July of the year you joined.
