Why do I have to wait 10-12 months to claim for music usage overseas?
We ask you to wait 10 to 12 months to claim after your music was performed overseas for a couple of reasons.
- Payment for your music usage can take significantly longer for overseas performances. It may be that your royalties have been collected and are due to be paid in the next distribution. We recommend you check the overseas payment schedule.
- Our partner societies overseas only accept claims once the money has become overdue. So you should only claim if the money is late.
If you think you're owed royalties from an overseas performance, and it's past the date listed on the payment schedule, make a claim.
