What is a short-term licence?

  • Following the launch of PPL PRS Ltd in February 2018, we have been transitioning existing PPL and PRS for Music customers over to TheMusicLicence. The transition date will usually be determined by the customer’s PRS for Music licence review date.
  • In some cases, a customer may have a PPL licence that is due to expire before their PRS for Music licence review date. Where this applies, to keep things simpler for the customer, we issue a short-term PPL licence (on the same terms and conditions as the customer’s old PPL licence, and with pro-rated charges) for the period between the expiry of their old PPL licence and their PRS for Music licence review date, when the customer will move across to TheMusicLicence.
