IS YOUR HOTEL  OR PUBLIC HOUSE PAYING TOO MUCH FOR SKY AND MUSIC RIGHTS

Most hospitality premises  in Ireland will receive IMRO credit notes  and invoicing as premises start to reopen. Sky may have also started invoicing some premises that are now open.

As a result of the various opening and closing of hospitality due to the pandemic, it can be confusing to establish if the appropriate credits and refunds have been applied to your account.

We provide the following services to ensure all the appropriate credits, refunds, etc are applied to your IMRO and Sky accounts:

IMRO & PPI

  • IMRO will be issuing Invoices and credit notes to many premsies as we start to reopen. We will check these invoices and credit notes to ensure all appropriate IMRO and PPI credits / refunds are applied to your account due to the various Covid-19 Closures and reduced music use. We will also ensure that the charges going forward are appropriate to your music use.

  • If your premises stayed open for Outdoor dining ,Healthcare Workers or people self-isolating etc, we can ensure only the appropriate charges are applied to your account as some of IMRO’s charging parameters will have been affected by social distancing etc.

Sky Sports

  • Review all Sky Sports credits and refunds during the various closure periods. We have dealt with many hotels and have found in some cases that the appropriate credits and refunds were not applied. We can also identify if a change in contract can result in further savings.

  • Some  Sky Charges are based on the  bars excise duty on their license  which is related to turnover( Sky pubs & Clubs license). As a further pandemic support revenue will again this year not charge excise duty on a publicans license.  Sky have now confirmed that they will be charging premises based on their 2019 publicans license excise duty cost meaning the significant reduction in turnover will not be reflected in the Sky charges. That is why it is more important then ever to review your Sky charges to see what can be done.

Our charge for these services is 50% of any annual credits /savings we achieve so there is no charge if we do not secure further savings for you.

Please feel free to contact us for a free consultation to discuss our services in more detail.

UPDATE ON SKY FOR PUBLIC HOUSES

 Pubs and Clubs contracts are based on excise duty, which relates to turnover. 

Obviously with the impact of COVID-19 turnover has been significantly affected and therefore Public Houses excise duty if applied by revenue in September will have significantly reduced and therefore so should your Sky charges.

However as the government are   not charging excise duty again this year Sky have now confirmed that they will be basing their charges on pre-covid  September 2019  excise duty charges  which makes it more important now than ever to review your Sky charges. 

To discuss further please feel free to contact us.
