Remuneration from abroad

When STIM's catalogue is performed outside of Sweden, STIM receives royalties for and details of the works performed. When music from other countries is performed in Sweden, STIM sends royalties to collecting societies in those countries.

It is almost impossible to say in advance how much money you will receive from abroad for a particular work. Each performing rights organisation has its own rules governing how much money is paid - if any at all.

No deduction on foreign income

When STIM receives payments from the international market they are passed on to the composer as part of the next payment (in March, June, September or December), without any deduction for administration.
