What is TheMusicLicence?

TheMusicLicence allows you to legally play music for employees or customers in your business through the radio, TV, other digital devices and live performances.

Previously, businesses and organisations had to obtain separate music licences from PPL and PRS for Music. However, we have now come together to form PPL PRS Ltd and launch TheMusicLicence. What does this mean?

One contact. One invoice. One licence.

How it works

We collect licence fees from UK businesses and organisations on behalf of our parent companies, PPL and PRS for Music.

PPL then distributes these licence fees for the use of recorded music on behalf of record companies and performers, while PRS for Music distributes licence fees for the use of musical compositions and lyrics on behalf of songwriters, composers and publishers.

This ensures that the people who create music are fairly rewarded for their talent and work.
