ROYALTY PAYMENT SCHEDULES
UK ROYALTY PAYMENT DATESMaori Music pays Performance Royalties to clients through four main distributions each year :
April, July, October and December.
Reconciliation Royalty Payments are paid to clients through four main distributions each year :
March, May, August and November.
Mechanical Royalties are paid monthly.
PPL / Neighbouring Royalties are paid annually in July.
For overseas royalties, these dates may differ.
Usual timings from play to payThe time it takes to pay royalties varies, depending on how and where the music is being used.
First the use is reported then matched to the works in our copyright database.
For example, if your work is played on TV in January, we might not know about this until April so the most likely payment date will be our July distribution.
We make payments from all sources on the nearest possible scheduled payment date.

Royalty Payment Dates for Overseas SocietiesWe receive money from overseas societies throughout the year, which we pay through our distributions.
Some societies only distribute once or twice a year, so it can take a while for you to receive royalties after the play or performance date.
For money that we collect from PRS Managed Territories (The Bahamas, Bermuda, Cyprus, Gibraltar, The Gulf and Malta), we distribute this twice a year, in July and December.
