Trade and service establishments
For a live performance (a band or an artist) in a trade or service establishment, a repertoire report shall be submitted in addition to the financial report, which can be found at the following website http://rep.eau.org.
The rate of the licence fee depends on the size of the service area and whether the music can be heard outside the premises of the trade and service establishment.
