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.
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 premises Sky Charges are based on the hotels bar's turnover so we will ensure that the charges going forward reflect the reduced turnover because of Covid 19 when the publicans’ licenses are issued in September.
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. When licenses are issued in September 2021 Sky have agreed to backdate their charges for 12 months in line with the excise duty of the license.
Obviously with the impact of COVID-19 turnover has been significantly affected and therefore Public Houses will be due back dated credits from Sky in September and reduced charges going forward.
We will analyse the credits you have received to date from Sky and make sure they are the appropriate credits, as is some cases the credits have been understated. We will also in September 2021 make sure that all the backdated credits due on Pubs and Clubs accounts are secured and that the reduced charge is applied to the account going forward. Our fee for this service is €150 and we would not expect payment of any kind until your premises is open to the public,
As a result of the various opening and closures that have taken place in the hospitality industry it is more important now then ever for charges to IMRO ,PPI, Sky, MPLC etc. to be reviewed.
In most cases premises will be due significant credits and we can ensure that only the appropriate charges apply.
We can also provide music solutions that can result in savings of 60% on your background music charges.
Our Charge will be based on what services your require however we will spread payments over a 12 month period and not expect any payments unless your premises is open for business.
We will review all charges, credits, refunds due etc and ensure that you are only charged appropriately so none of your time is taken up with such matters and you can concentrate on when your business reopens.
