When are royalties reported and paid?

In this post, you'll find the schedule for monthly reporting and payments to keep you updated and aware of when reports are posted and can be claimed. Sometimes, reports can arrive late from partners and, in turn, are added on to the next reporting period.

You can expect a report after a calendar month has passed to cover a month that passed 2 months prior. This happens because it may take up to 60 days for Symphonic to receive payment and/or even statements, so we'll need a month in between to ensure payment has been collected prior to paying everything out to you.

We've also included ESTIMATED POSTING DATES to make all this even easier for you.

Reporting Period - This is the time during which the report will cover. For example, the January report will show all royalties earned during the month of January. 

Estimated Payment Date - This is the estimated date Symphonic will provide the results for the reported period and when royalties will be added to your account balance. (For example, the January report will be provided between the dates of March 31, and April 5th.) Please keep in mind these dates may change to be sooner or later based on factors in partner reporting.

*Pre-order Royalties - Don't forget that pre-order royalties come out on the date of sale (meaning general release date), so for a release with a pre-order in January with a general release in February, you would see all of the pre-order royalties on the February report as they will be added on the release date, not the actual date of the pre-order purchase.

We hope this helped! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.
