Does Songtrust's Admin Commission Apply to All Of My Royalties?

Our commission applies to publishing royalties only.

Songtrust's administration commission only applies to royalties that we collect and pay out to you.

We collect performance, mechanical, and micro-sync royalties on your behalf internationally. This includes the publisher share of your performance royalties and your mechanical royalties from your Performing Rights Organization(PRO) and other global collection societies.

In most cases, the writer share will go untouched by us and will be sent to you directly by your PRO. In the occasional case that we do collect the writer share, we do not commission it.
