Create a Payment Summary in the Writer Portal

Tip Published Thursday 22 July 2021

Now available in the Writer Portal: Payment Summary documents.

This document can be used for tax purposes or for other business requirements.

You can create summaries based on the AU and/or NZ financial year, or for a set date range.


We're pleased to let you know that you can now create a Payment Summary document when you log in to the Writer Portal.

This is a document you can use for tax purposes or to generate a summary for a specific period of time.

If your manager or bookkeeper is a Secondary user with Financial permission, they're also able to generate a Payment Summary on your behalf.

How to create your Payment Summary:

  • Log in to the Writer Portal, using the email address this email was sent to; create a password if you haven't logged in before
  • Go to the Royalties tab, click on Payment Summary
  • Select your Tax Residence from the available option to ensure correct currency
  • Select your relevant period: for tax residents of Australia or New Zealand, Last Financial Year will set the date range for the respective country
  • Or, select For a Specific Period to set your date range
  • Click Submit and a PDF will be generated to download
