Distribution Timetable

2022

The timing of distributions of licensing revenue collected from the different sectors is outlined in the schedule below.

You can expect to receive a share of licensing revenue based on the publications which have been copied or used according to the data collected from licensees by the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) or NLA media access (NLA), as appropriate. This is allocated on a title by title basis (title specific distributions).

Some overseas licensing organisations do not collect data from their users. Licensing revenue collected from such sources (non-title specific) is allocated pro rata to publishers who have received distributions on a title specific basis in the UK.

Please note that the schedule may occasionally be subject to change.

Please visit the Distribution Charter for more information, including minimum payment thresholds.
