Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society

The Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society is a body that collects and pays out royalties on photocopied books and articles. It's well worth registering and the one-time membership cost is deducted from your first royalty payment. If you don't make any money, you don't pay!

DACS Payback

If you take photographs to accompany your work, there are royalties to be had on that too. Register with DACS Payback to register your work.

Public Lending Rights

The Public Lending Rights Scheme pays authors for the lending of their works. If you are a commercially published author, you should register your work here.
