GVL forwards foreign remuneration to performing artists and recording producers

At the beginning of June, GVL already forwarded international revenues to their entitled recording producers. Now the foreign remuneration for performing artists will follow as planned.

In this distribution round, a total of approximately 2.6 million Euros from all over the world will be distributed to our rightsholders this time. 

This time, our recording producers receive remunerations from Great Britain, Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and the USA, among others.  Moreover, we forward money to our performing artists from Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Austria and others. For the first time, our musicians also receive usage-based payments from Brazil.

Prerequisites for receiving foreign remuneration are the registrations of participations and repertoire in our portals for rightsholders as well as the commissioning for international rights management.

Unlike many sister societies, GVL forwards royalties to its rightsholders in full without deducting any costs. If you want us to act for you internationally, assign us a foreign mandate in just a few steps:

  • Performing artists please use the form „International mandate for the transfer of rights“

Updating of master data

In order to be able to forward remuneration reliably, we ask our rightsholders to check their master data regularly and to update it if necessary:

  • Performing artists can find their personal Data in the portal meine.gvl under „Personal data“/ „Financial data“
  • Recording producers can find their company data in the portal label.gvl under „Master data“
