Who collects the equitable remuneration ?

Since 1 January 2020, commercial enterprises, restaurants and bars, and event organisers can pay both the equitable remuneration and copyrights through Unisono. The collecting societies PlayRight, Sabam and SIMIM have joined forces to make this happen.

UNISONO is among other things responsible for collecting the equitable remuneration for the use of recorded music. UNISONO then transfers the equitable remuneration on the basis of an equal share to the two collecting societies:

  • PlayRight for the part that belongs to the performing artists,
  • SIMIM for the part that music producers are entitled to.

Before 2020, Honebel and Outsourcing Partners were appointed to collect the equitable remuneration. In case you’d need to regularise your situation regarding the payment of the equitable remuneration for a period before 2020, please contact one of the following societies:

  • Honebel, appointed to collect the equitable remuneration from HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants and bars) (Tel: 02 514 27 33, on business days from 9 am to 12 pm and from 1 pm to 4 pm).
  • Outsourcing Partners, which was mandated to collect the equitable compensation for other activities, temporary events and local radio stations (info@requit.be – Tel: 02 710 51 01, on business days from 9 am to 3.30 pm).
