Every time you play your own songs live, you’re earning money. Performance Reports tell us when, where and what you’ve performed so that we can accurately pay you live performance royalties.

To get paid, you must submit your own Performance Reports through our Writer Portal with the following information:

  • Performance date
  • Venue name and address
  • List of works performed

The cut-off date for submitting Performance Reports for the previous financial year is 31 July, but you can use the system in the way that suits you best:

  • Claim each performance as you go or
  • Keep records of performances over a period of time, and make all your claims together at a later date

If you’ve been a member for a while, you might be familiar with the old LPRs and Event Performance Statements (setlists). Please note that these have been completely replaced by Performance Reports.
