Do you write music? Then you should become a writer member of APRA AMCOS.
It's free to join up. And once you do, we can help you make money from your music.
We offer flexible membership, depending on how your music is used. You'll also join a collective music community of 90,000 songwriters and composers.
Our writer members can register works, submit Performance Reports and view royalty statements through our convenient portal.
Play Live? Then you need to lodge an online Performance Report to receive a payment for all your live performances.
We're with you, every step of the way! We represent your rights around the world, open up access to the global market and have reps on the ground in LA, Nashville and London.
Here you'll find details on a whole bunch of events to help you on your way - songwriting competitions, music marketing workshops, professional development events and more!
Are you a music publisher? Do you have publishing agreements with multiple songwriters?
Here you'll find out what services we offer.
Are you of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage and write original music? APRA AMCOS and the Australia Council for the Arts set up the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Office to support songwriters and composers.
Get an overview of how royalties work and what you need to tell us to earn them.
The Australian Copyright Act gives songwriters and composers the right to control how their music is used. So whenever music is played in public, the songwriter or composer who wrote it might be entitled to royalties. This is where we can help you.
Write music for advertisements? To get paid, you must regularly register your jingles and upload audio files to our Online Portal for Uploading Songs (OPUS).
Already a member? Access all the forms you need to register performances and reproductions of your works.
If you're a member of APRA AMCOS, we can take care of your royalties worldwide through reciprocal agreements with performing and mechanical right organisations in 70+ countries.
We care about the service we offer.
You don't have to rely on us to get paid when your music is played. You can also choose to deal directly with the music user.
