APRA’s Live Performance Returns are due at the end of August. If you perform original music live, then you’re entitled to royalty payments.
Live Performance Returns (LPRs) are APRA’s unique system for our members to report their live performances. They’re an essential step in receiving royalty payments – they tell us what you’ve performed, where you’ve performed, and how often you’ve performed live.
Last year, APRA collected over $3.78 million which was distributed to our members and members of our affiliated societies for their live performances.
It’s easy to submit an LPR – just log in on the APRA|AMCOS website, www.apraamcos.com.au, and head to the writer login area to complete your Live Performance Return for the 10-11 financial year (1 July 2010-31 June 2011). Submit it by August 31, and you’ll be paid in November
Need Help with your LPR?
To help with the process, we’re hosting LPR Connecting Members meetings around the country during August. Your local Writer Services representatives will be on hand to guide you through the LPR process.
