    What happens to expired remunerations?

    Remunerations collected by Gramex can expire if they cannot be paid to a certain rightsholder or the rightsholder cannot be reached. However, Gramex will not keep these remunerations. They will be distributed in a manner decided separately as direct remunerations to music performers and phonogram producers as well as to funds benefiting rightsholder groups. As a general principle regarding expired remunerations, the Council meeting of Gramex can decide that any undistributed remunerations be added to the collective management organisation’s capital, used either as direct or collective remunerations, or otherwise used to benefit those entitled to remunerations.
