PRS for Music and PPL, the UK’s two music collecting societies, have joined forces to set up PPL PRS Ltd, a joint venture combining the two societies’ public performance licensing activities. PPL PRS Ltd launched the joint licence on 26 February 2018 and offers a single licence, called TheMusicLicence, on behalf of both PRS for Music and PPL, to play or perform music in public.
All pre-existing PRS for Music accounts are now managed by PPL PRS Ltd, so please contact PPL PRS Ltd if you have any queries about your PRS for Music licence. During the first year of PPL PRS Ltd’s operation, all pre-existing PRS for Music customers will be transitioned to TheMusicLicence. PPL PRS Ltd will notify each customer in advance to explain in detail how the transition process will work for them.
