Deadlines

Deadlines for registering programs

Screenrights members can register programs at any time. However, if you wish to be paid royalties as soon as they’re available, we recommend that you register your program as soon as it is made.

We release new royalties for payment each December. This is our largest payment run, and members whose titles are registered with us by the end of September usually receive first payments.

Payments are then made throughout the year on the basis of quarterly runs (March, June, September, December). Again, members whose titles are registered wih us by the close of the month prior, will usually receive first payments (February, May, August, and September for the December payments).

To ensure your registrations are up to date prior to the quarterly payment run Members who register using the ARI format, CSV or Excel Registration template should have any registration updates in by these dates:

Registrations Deadline 1        30 September
Registrations Deadline 2        1 January  
Registrations Deadline 3        31 March
Registrations Deadline 4        30 June

 

Distribution Year facing the deadline

All royalties from Australia and New Zealand royalty collection services must be claimed within a 6-year period.  Any undistributed royalties are forfeited and reallocated. Royalties from the 2012 distribution year expire on 30 June 2018.
