"Since the launch at the end of 2014, the use of the online declaration tool for events increased from 30.71% to 60%. That’s double! For contractual declarations (bars, shops, etc.), the use went up to 25%, an increase of 1/3rd.
The average processing time for declarations in our back office, is now 50% faster than for declarations on ‘paper’."

  • Whether you’re organizing a concert or playing music at work, the use of music has to be declared to SABAM. This Belgian association of authors, composers and publishers is responsible for collecting and distributing copyright royalties.

    Declaring one’s use of music is actually not as simple as it may seem. The first choice in the declaration form – the type of use – is the most important one because it largely determines the rate that will be used.

  • Forms are not the easiest way to approach users. Clearly communicating the various steps to be completed and indicating users’ progress as they go through the form, will encourage users to complete the entire file.

    Reducing the number of steps and categorizing the information in a logical way drastically simplifies the declaration process. This simplification has certainly paid off. Even without major communication campaigns or promotional activities, within the first six months after the launch:

    • the number of online declarations for happenings and contracts increased by 30 %.
    • the number of online declarations for events even doubled.

    This entails tremendous efficiency gains for SABAM, because online declarations can be processed twice as fast as paper declarations
