YOUR ROYALTIES is a service brought to you by music publisher PLATFORM SONGS (an associate member of the PRS/MCPS), allowing artists and bands who are performing their own material, the opportunity to receive royalties generated from live gigs of their songs, from radio and tv airplay in the Uk, and other public performance (e.g pub jukeboxes), without the immediate need to join a collection society such as PRS. Mechanical royalties are also claimable if you have had songs included in a commercial physical release over the last 6 years.

If you are a solo artist or group at the early stage of your career, or more established, it may be that you do not want to join The Performing Rights Society directly, avoiding the time consuming task of submitting claims. You may prefer to have us administrate the collection of your royalties, ensuring all relevant radio plays are paid for and all gig performances are submitted correctly. Also with our service, we can BACKDATE your claims for up to 6 years, which you can't do at the time of joining PRS as a direct member! Via Your Royalties, we have earned our writers significant amounts of money in payment for gigs and airplay claims submitted in arrears to PRS.

By means of an administration deal, we will collect the royalties earned from regular gigs you are performing - to qualify you must have played at least 10 small gigs anytime within the last year, i.e you can backdate your claim 12 months from the submission date!. For larger venues and festivals (no minimum claim), we can backdate claims up to 3 years, and for airplay you have received for your songs you can also make a claim up to 3 years in arrears! PRS distribute radio play and live gig revenues 4 times per year, and while rates can obviously vary widely (here are some
cash value examples), a national radio play or concert venue performance can generate a healthy payment. Our form of publishing deal will allow you to retain more control of your songs, with the freedom of being able to give one months notice to us at any time following payment of all claimable backdated royalties as submitted in your initial claim, should you like to terminate the agreement,if for example you are approached by a publishing company offering you a lucrative deal for your songs! All we take is a 20% fee of any royalties collected on your behalf to cover the administration, and a £1 processing fee per distribution.

+ As an added bonus, as long as you are signed with us, we can pitch your songs/tracks to film, tv and advertising projects whenever we receive suitable
SYNC briefs. And the corresponding sound recording rights you grant us are non exclusive, meaning you are free to use your masters for any other purpose you choose - as you retain ownership.

So, whether you are PRS member or not, you could benefit from our collection and pitching services. Our current catalogue includes songs airplayed on BBC Radio2, BBC Radio Scotland, XFM London, XFM Scotland, BBC6 Music, BBC Radio1 and many other stations in the Uk and abroad, so we always strive to sign and work with quality songwriters and artists, as well as providing a platform for artist development via associated label WHIMSICAL RECORDS
.

This service might suit you if you're a writer with a collection of songs that could potentially earn some money, but you don't have a lot of time or energy to self-publish by registering with a collection society and tracking royalties yourself. And remember - this arrangement is not a long term commitment - you can terminate with a month's notice at any time following payment of your initial backdated claim.

For further info, to discuss the agreements, or if you have any further queries, contact us by
email, or give us a call. We offer a dedicated service, and strive to help dedicated songwriters and artists receive the money that is rightfully theirs.

If you prefer to register with us via the old fashioned type ‘contract’ with a signature, you need to complete our Publishing Agreement containing the straight forward terms, including entering an email address which must also be the address you use to email us the scanned copy with your signature. Alternatively, you can post it by snail mail to us. (Please drop us an email to arrange posting).

Whatever method you use to sign up, we will take that as your acceptance to us collecting royalties on your behalf.

We look forward to working with you.
