Payments and Fees

Payments

If we have collected royalties for you, we will send you a letter and a royalty statement which sets out in detail how your work was licensed, how much we collected for you and our charges. You will receive the payment directly into your nominated bank account.

To ensure prompt payment it’s important we have your current bank details. Please complete this form to provide your banking details or contact our Member Services team by email memberservices@copyright.com.au or phone 1800 066 844. For security reasons we ask for a copy of your Photo ID when updating payment details.

Fees

Copyright Agency is a not-for-profit organisation. There is no fee to join, though an administration fee is deducted from any payments we collect for you to cover our running costs. We keep our operating costs low to deliver greater income to you.

Our deductions are as follows:

25% of income collected from Copyright Agency’s Viscopy licence in Australia and New Zealand

Around 14% of income collected from our international partners, which is only deducted if your art is reproduced internationally and income is collected overseas

Around 14% of income collected from ‘statutory’ licence fees by Copyright Agency and Screenrights

Screenrights deducts a commission from statutory income it pays to Copyright Agency. If you join Screenrights directly you do not pay Copyright Agency’s commission on Screenrights statutory income.
