For the performance, at any time and as often as desired in the years 2018 to 2022, of any or all of the works in SOCAN’s repertoire, by means of performers in person or by means of recorded music, in connection with roller or ice skating, the royalties are as follows:

For all years except 2020 and 2021:

For 2020 and 2021:

Terms and Conditions

The user shall estimate the royalties payable for the year covered by the tariff based on the total gross receipts from admissions, exclusive of sales and amusement taxes, for the previous year and shall pay such estimated royalties to SOCAN on or before January 31 of the year covered by the tariff. Payment of the royalties shall be accompanied by a report of the gross receipts for the previous year.

If the gross receipts reported for the previous year were not based on the entire year, payment of these royalties shall be accompanied by a report estimating the gross receipts from admissions for the entire year covered by the tariff.

On or before January 31 of the following year, a report shall be made of the actual gross receipts from admissions during the year covered by the tariff, an adjustment of the royalties payable to SOCAN shall be made, and any additional royalties due on the basis of the actual gross receipts from admission charges shall be paid to SOCAN. If the royalties due are less than the amount paid, SOCAN shall credit the user with the amount of the overpayment.

SOCAN shall have the right to audit the user’s books and records, on reasonable notice and during normal business hours, to verify the statements rendered and the royalties payable by the user.

Any amount not received by the due date shall bear interest from that date until the date the amount is received. Interest shall be calculated daily, at a rate equal to one per cent above the Bank Rate effective on the last day of the previous month (as published by the Bank of Canada). Interest shall not compound.

All amounts payable under this tariff are exclusive of any federal, provincial or other governmental taxes or levies of any kind.
