Previously, businesses and organisations needing these licences had to obtain them separately from PPL (which represents performers and record companies) and PRS for Music (which represents songwriters, composers and music publishers).

However, we have now joined forces to streamline part of what we do, by forming PPL PRS Ltd. This will make it easier for our public performance customers as they will now be able to obtain a single licence, TheMusicLicence.

TheMusicLicence will give you a single point of contact, with one invoice and one licence, making it easier for you to be correctly licensed and enjoy the potential benefits of music in your business. For more information, visit

PPL and PRS for Music will continue to set their respective public performance tariffs separately.  You can view PPL’s current public performance tariffs (showing, for different business types/music uses, the level of fees and how they are calculated) on the PPL PRS Ltd website.  Any prices shown do not include VAT.
