Registration Of Works With MACP

Members should notify all their published works by registering your compositions in the notification of works form as soon as your compositions are recorded and released. The notification is important as the information supplied shall determine the amount of royalty income distributed to you for performance and broadcast of each of your works in the future.

Kindly note that the registration must be COMPLETE ie all the copyright owners’ information and share must be indicated in the notification of works form. Only completed information will be accepted by MACP.

If your publisher is a member of MACP, the registration is normally done by your publisher. But you should check the works registered with MACP to ensure that all your compositions are properly registered with us by asking MACP to print a list of your works for your verification.

If your publisher is not a member of MACP, you should register your compositions directly with MACP via the notification of works form which can be downloaded here.

Notification of music used in a film (registration of works in film pdf form) and commercial jingles (registration of works in commercial jingles pdf form) should be registered under separate forms indicating all the necessary information as requested.

Notify MACP of Your Performances of Your Work
If you are aware that your works are performed locally or abroad; do notify MACPs with details of the performances so that MACP can license the event or the music user or inform our affiliated societies so that you can receive your due royalties. The notification form can be downloaded here.

    E-Payment of Royalties

    Since 2012, MACP has encouraged members to provide their bank accounts for direct payment of royalties into their bank accounts.This is to expedite payment to members and eliminate any possibility of cheques fraudulently altered due to intercepted mails. Whilst many members have since complied, we note that there are still members who have yet to provide MACP with their bank details.

    Please be informed that with IMMEDIATE EFFECT, all royalty payments will be credited into the members’ bank accounts. This service is free to all members for credit by Interbank Giro.

    Members who have yet to furnish us with their bank details are required to complete the Bank Instruction Letter and email to or fax to 03-6413 0704.

    MACP will no longer issue cheques unless for exceptional cases where members could not open bank accounts. In such a case, the member is required to write in officially to MACP and come personally to collect the cash cheque. With IMMEDIATE EFFECT, MACP will not post cheques to prevent lost or mail interception.
