Payment of your royalties

We distribute the royalties we receive from the users of your creations (theatre halls, cultural centres, television channels, etc.) on the basis of:

  • the playlists that we receive from them;
  • the distribution key agreed with any co-authors when declaring the work.

Do you notice that your work is being used in public? Let us know! You will thus receive your remuneration with certainty.

For each remuneration you get for your copyrights, you receive a statement including:

  • the gross amount of your royalties;
  • the commission charged for the management of your rights;
  • the contribution to the social and cultural fund;
  • the withholding tax that we pay to the tax authorities.
