Monthly reporting and payment schedule

In this post, you'll find the schedule for monthly reporting and payments to keep you updated and aware of when reports are posted. 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 before paying everything out to you.

We've also included ESTIMATED POSTING DATES to make this 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 January. 

Estimated Payment Date - This is the estimated date Symphonic will provide the reported period results and when royalties will be added to your account balance. (For example, the January report will be provided between the dates of April 1st and April 5th.) Please keep in mind these dates may change sooner or later based on partner reporting factors.

Estimated week when "Payment Requests" will be closed – Near the end of each month, we turn off the ability to request payments so that we may reconcile payments and roll unclaimed balances into the next report. This is the estimated week when the ability to request payments will not be available. (For example, payment requests will be available from approximately April 1st through April 23rd.) Please keep in mind these dates may change to be sooner or later based on how business days and holidays fall on the calendar for any given month or year.

*Pre-order Royalties - Pre-order royalties come out on the date of sale (your 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.
