MUSIC CREATOR APPLICATION

A step-by-step process for music creators

There are so many benefits for Music Creators when they become SAMRO members. As guardians of the music industry, SAMRO has a duty to ensure that all of our members meet certain requirements.

SAMRO’s Board of Directors has the final say on your membership approval. If they give you the nod – you’re in! The board sits four times a year - March, June, September and November, and that’s when new members get the green light.

STEP 1

  • Download the 4 required forms below.
  • The Membership application form – lets us know who you are.
  • Deed of Assignment form – gives us the go-ahead to administer your Performance Rights.
  • Notification of Works form – lets us know which works you’re claiming ownership of.
  • Banking details update form – gives us your banking details so that we are able to pay you the royalties you've earned.

You can contact SAMRO 4 weeks after you have submitted your application forms. SAMRO will then provide you with a relation number which you can use to track the status of your application.

STEP 5

To be elected to membership, your notified musical works must have been broadcast and/or performed significantly enough to earn reasonable royalties. Once the SAMRO Board of Directors has given you the green light then you can start enjoying the benefits of being a SAMRO member.
