When should I join PRS?

If you're a writer

We recommend you join once your projected annual royalties exceeds the membership fee, which is currently a one-off admission fee of £100. For more information, see what £100 in royalties looks like in terms of radio play, TV play and live performances. 

If you're a publisher

You'll need at least 15 works that are being broadcast on radio or TV, used online or performed live in your catalogue.
