The following information is regarding TuneCore's Publishing Administration service
TuneCore accounts to you 45 days following the end of each calendar quarter.
For example, the 1st quarter of a year is from January 1st to March 31st. 45 days following March 31st would be May 15th. Therefore, this is the day you receive your statement.
Your PDF accounting statement and royalties appear in your TuneCore Dashboard under the MONEY & REPORTS tab under BALANCE . You will receive a statement if income has been earned but you will only be able to withdraw the funds if you have submitted tax info. You can withdrawal the royalties using the following methods:
- Via check, which has a $3.00 processing fee per check (there is a $103 minimum for checks). Checks arrive in about 10 business days within the United States but can take up to 6 weeks internationally.
- Via PayPal, which does not have a processing fee from TuneCore. Transfers can take 3-4 business days to appear.
- Via EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), which has a $2.75 processing fee per withdrawal and can only be sent to a U.S. or U.S. territory bank account (no international banks). The deposit can take 7-10 business days to appear
Please be advised after successfully registering your compositions, it can take up to 6 months for us to begin to receive publishing royalties that you may be owed domestically. For foreign sources, it can take upwards to 18 months.
Below is a payout schedule for your reference:
Quarter 1 – May 15th
