Why Does Songtrust Have A 1-year Post-Term Collection After Cancelling An Account?

You are still entitled to royalties generated during that time!

If you decide to cancel your account, Songtrust will actively relinquish your catalog and assist you in transferring to a new publisher. Due to the way societies operate, we often still receive payments for streams and uses that occurred during your Songtrust agreement for about one year after. We collect only for the duration of your agreement with Songtrust. Until new administration notifies societies to collect on your behalf, the societies will normally continue paying the most recent publisher associated with the account.

After your term with Songtrust, your functioning account with Payoneer remains active as long as updated billing information is listed. You may request an exported royalties statement at any time by contacting us directly.
