GVL forwards foreign remuneration to performing artists and recording producers

For the third time this year, GVL is forwarding international revenues to their entitled performing artists and recording producers as planned.

A total of approximately 6 million euros will be distributed to our rightsholders from abroad this quarter.

This time, our recording producers receive remunerations from Great Britain, Sweden, Belgium, Ireland, the USA and the Netherlands.  In addition, we forward money to our artists from the USA, Switzerland, France, South Africa, Denmark and others. For the first time, our actors and actresses receive usage-based payments from Spain.

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:

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 my.gvl under „Personal data“/ „Financial data“
  • Recording producers can find their company data in the portal label.gvl under „Master data“
