The licence agreement for the public performance of musical works at a sports event shall be entered into at least 2 working days before the event.
The license fee depends on the nature of the sports event – whether it is an event where music is a mandatory component of the respective sport (e.g., figure skating, rhythmic gymnastics, competitive dance, dance competition) or not. The license fee also depends on whether the music is played as background music or if there is a live performance. The licence fee will be calculated on the basis of income received as admission and/or the participation fee for the event.
|If the sport event does not have a concert component|
|1) 0.5% of the sporting event’s entrance fee or participation fee (excluding VAT), but not less than 10 € per event day.|
|2) 10 € per each day of a sporting event if the event is free of charge and admission is also free of charge.|
|Sports event where music is a mandatory component (e.g. figure scating, gymnastics, dance competition) or if sports event has a concert component|
|2.5% of the sporting event’s entrance fee (excluding VAT), but not less than 25 € per event day.|
All tickets distributed through barter transactions will be included in the admission fee and will be calculated on the basis of the average ticket sales price.
Tickets distributed free of charge, which represent more than 10% of the total number of tickets for the event, will be included in the admission fee and will be calculated on the basis of the average ticket sales price.
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.
