Payment of your royalties

The royalties we collect via Unisono from the users of your works are redistributed to you. This redistribution is done on the basis of the play lists and the distribution key agreed for the work. We receive the playlists from the users, but you can also provide them to us yourself, by giving us the list of your concerts via MyPlaylist in MySabam.


Each amount you collect for your royalties comes with a statement that includes:

  • the gross amount of royalties;
  • the commission deducted for management;
  • the contribution to the social and cultural fund;
  • the withholding tax that we pay to the State.
