When do you pay out royalties for my played and registered works?

So that money flows to your account as steadily as possible, we pay out our collections at fixed dates which are spread across the year. You can view the exact dates of the respective categories here. Please note: The money paid out to you relates to collections made for the previous year. 

International Income and Online:

Current distribution dates for collections from abroad can be viewed under International royalties distribution.

Current distribution dates of the online categories can be viewed under Online royalties distribution.

Requirements for a distribution and the receipt of royalties:

  • You are a GEMA member.
  • You have submitted your work declarations in time.
  • We also have to have notifications and reports from the music users, such as event organisers and broadcasters.
