IMRO is one of the most efficient performing rights organisations in the world in terms of the frequency of distributions it makes to its members and affiliated societies worldwide. In addition to this IMRO does not apply any administration fees to royalties earned by its members from international performances of their works.
The work involved in carrying out the analysis of programmes and other data and the allocation of credits and shares is complicated and lengthy so there is an inevitable time-lag between the receipt of revenues by IMRO and their distribution as royalties. When distributions take place the member receives a detailed statement which shows the total amount earned in the distribution and a breakdown of this amount by work title, source of performance, share in the work and amount earned. Normally four major domestic distributions are made each year with royalties for Major Live Events distributed monthly, as are royalties for Live Classical performances and recitals. Royalties generated from overseas exploitations of your works are also paid on a monthly basis. How often you recieve as statement is dependent on the activity of your songs both here in Ireland and overseas.
