GEMA has always aimed to offer its members and partners first-class services. This calls for continuous development, particularly in the digital arena. The key location for all important member features – from work declarations to the management of authorisations to detailed statements – is the GEMA Online Portal. In recent years, we have intensively expanded its wide-ranging services.

In connection with the above, in the summer of 2023 we expanded the My royalties area. Now, with the detailed statements integrated into the Online Portal, we sad goodbye to GEMA Download and replaced this service. As of now, you can find your detailed statements, your compact statements (new file format) and your summary sheet (new file format) and also further information about distributions – along with all other GEMA services – in the Online Portal (under My royalties).

Old formats from GEMA Download remain available in the Online Portal until the start of 2025

The distribution dated 1 April 2024 was the last time we provided detailed statements via the GEMA Download service. As of now, you can access all distribution files directly via the Online Portal.

You can now call up all distribution files directly under My downloads: Detailed statements, compact statement, summary sheet. 

So that you can familiarise yourself better with the changeover, we will also provide you with the old formats ("GDF", "csv old" or "csv new" from GEMA Download) for a transitional period up to and including the distribution on 1 January 2025, also available under My downloads

The online portal – available anytime and anywhere

To date, over 57,000 music creators have registered in the Online Portal. Feedback from GEMA members concerning the use of the Portal is very positive, and we take this as confirmation that the path we are pursuing into the future is correct and secure. If you do not yet have access to the Online Portal, we’ll show you how quickly and easily you can obtain this.
