If you play recorded music or music videos in public, you will almost certainly be legally required to have a PPL licence.
The cost of a licence depends on several factors including the type and size of the business, the activity and how you play recorded music.
Apply online for a licence or call us today on 020 7534 1070. If you require a radio broadcast licence, please call 020 7534 1423.
All licence fees collected (less PPL running costs) are distributed as payments to PPL members - the performers and rights holders of recorded music.
PPL collects and distributes money on behalf of record companies and performers. PRS for Music collects and distributes money on behalf of songwriters, composers and publishers.
PPL members can view statements, update repertoire and make claims through their online myPPL account.
We could be making you money. Becoming a member of PPL means you can start to collect the money you are entitled to for the use of your recorded music or performances.
If you have performed on, or if you own the rights to recorded music that has been played outside of the UK, then we can help you claim international royalties (neighbouring rights).
You can request an ISRC after you have joined as a member. If you do not need to become a member, please follow our instructions.
PPL has an annual payment for UK income while payments for other rights are made throughout the year. Take a look at the payment dates for PPL members during this year.
