Do I need a license to play music in my showroom?

If you play music in your shop or business premises you will be required by law to have TheMusicLicence from PPL PRS. The payments received from business owners for TheMusicLicence then get passed on to composers, lyricists, recording artists, musicians, music publishers and record companies. Example:  If you play music to customers on a shop floor (100 sqm or less), your combined yearly music licence for a retail shop could cost around £307 (excluding VAT). A 50% surcharge may be applied if music has been played before being correctly licensed.

Higher rates apply for larger premises.
