As a creator or an authorised representative, you can simply enter the bank details in our Online Portal under the service My details.
Do you not have access to the Online Portal yet? Find out here how to register.
Alternatively, you can also notify us of your bank details in writing. In that case, we need creators to provide their own signature, publishers must produce the signature of their respective Managing Director, in the case of a GbR [partnership under German law], signatures of all partners must be supplied unless a partner is authorised as a sole signatory and GEMA is aware of this. These must be communicated: IBAN, and in addition to that, the BIC for countries outside Germany and within the SEPA area, and the ABA routing number for bank connections in the USA.
Please use the following forms for this purpose:
Notification of a bank account – only if domiciled for tax purposes in Germany
Notification of a bank account – SEPA only (EU/EWR excl. Germany)
Notification of a bank account – non-SEPA (USA & outside EU/EWR)
You can also send the bank details form signed by you as a pdf attachment to an e-mail to email@example.com or by post to GEMA Generaldirektion, Mitglieder & Partner Administration, Rosenheimer Str. 11, 81667 München, Germany/Deutschland.
