Good news! The new Performance Report functionality is now open in the Writer Portal. Thanks for your patience while we’ve been getting the new portal right and for your feedback along the way. 

We understand the importance of reaping every dollar you earn from a live performance and to have minimum down time while you lodge those reports online.

Our new, streamlined Performance Report system (formerly LPR system) makes it easier for members to claim for playing live gigs. 

You may not know that APRA AMCOS is one of only a handful of performing right organisations in the world offering live performance payments - and we’ve been doing this for 25 years! This year, we are pleased to advise the per-performance rate has lifted to $2.09. 

ATSI songwriter and APRA AMCOS Ambassador Adam Briggs said, “As an artist you owe it to yourself to collect earnings for your work – be they minimal or substantial. It puts a great sense of ownership upon an artist to collect earnings for works performed and played and LPRs are another way of doing that.”

There are two new tabs in the portal for you to explore: Performance Reports and Set Lists.
Performance Reports
This new streamlined system covers both the old LPR and the old Event Performance Statements (set lists) from previous years. There is now no need for you to report these separately.
You can use the new Performance Reports 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 choose this option, be sure to record the following details: gig dates, venue names and songs performed at each gig – to make sure the new system works for you.

Set Lists
Our new Set List feature allows you to create and store song lists that can be easily added to your Performance Reports. If you perform the same sets regularly, you will find this a very useful new feature.

Other improvements you will notice in Performance Reports and Set Lists:

  • In the new ‘works search’ feature, you can now view all your works and just tick which ones you performed – you can even add songs written by other members of the band, or by other artists
  • If a song doesn’t appear in our database, you can manually add that work to your Performance Report
  • You can also add additional songs to a pre-existing Set List
  • When you create a Performance Report with a new set of songs, you can then save the list of songs as a Set List
  • If you regularly perform at the same venue, click ‘recreate with same details’ to add another performance with pre-populated fields.

Performance Reporting Checklist

Remember, you need the following information when reporting your live performances:

  • Each performance date;
  • Venue name OR promoted event name (and promoter name);
  • List of works performed.

Get started
