Where does my money go?

Find out how we determine licence fees and how much we pay out in royalties.

How licence fees are set

Licence fees are generally determined according to the nature and type of music use. We have various licence schemes for the different ways music is used by different industries.

For example, the value of music to a music streaming service or an FM radio station is very different to the value of music to a café owner. Our fees are applied to different industry types accordingly. Where music use is intrinsic to a business, our rates tend to be higher to reflect that value.
