Get paid more regularly: submit Performance Reports and get paid quarterly, instead of annually.
If you're playing live shows, make sure to submit Performance Reports, so you can get paid.
Playing gigs? We've got news for you.
It’s been way too long between gigs for many of you. But live music is on its way back, so if you’re out there playing gigs or about to, make sure you are in the mindset of submitting Performance Reports so you can get paid.
No more annual deadline
There is no cut-off date for Performance Reports, you submit them as you like, when it's convenient for you.
Get paid quarterly
Performance Reports royalties will be paid quarterly, per the APRA domestic royalty payment calendar with payments in February, May, August, November. The first of the quarterly payment will be paid in August.
Submit Performance Reports if you are playing gigs at pubs, clubs, cafes or other live music venues in Australia and New Zealand. If you perform at an event organised by a promoter, you don't need to submit a Performance Report.
Reminder: last year we fast-tracked the payment and paid it in May (based on financial year 2018/19 data) in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For any questions or if you are a new member and haven't done a Performance Report before - don't worry, contact your local Rep with any questions or ask us on Live Chat.
