Other musical events
For events with a high proportion of music and where the admission price includes a service or product other than musical entertainment, the licence fee rate is 2.5% of the income received as admission fees.
NB! The licence fee rates shown here do not include the amount of VAT to be added by the EAÜ under the Value-Added Tax Act, which is calculated on the EAÜ’s commission and shown as a separate line on the invoice submitted by the EAÜ.
NB! EAÜ can give licence only if the musical works are performed at a public event. EAÜ cannot give licence to perform musical works at a public meeting. For a public meeting, permission must be obtained directly from the author of the musical work or the holder of his rights (heir, publisher). A public meeting is a meeting, demonstration, picket, religious event, procession or other demonstration organized in a square, park, road, street or other public place.
