Irish PLR annual statements and payments


This year's Rate Per Loan for the Irish PLR scheme is 4.16 cent

Published date:
Irish PLR statements will be available to view via your online account during the week commencing 13 November 2017 (if you are synchronised with both UK and Irish PLR schemes). Online statements are provided regardless of whether there is a payment due.
Everyone else will continue to receive a paper statement (posted 2nd class during the week commencing 13 November 2017). Please note that paper statements are only sent to those who are due to receive a payment (ie your registered titles earn €2 or more).

If your payment is being made directly from the UK PLR office and not via a collecting society such as ICLA or ALCS, payment will be made between 4-13 December 2017.  Please ensure that your bank details are up to date and advise us of any change by 27 November 2017 to prevent delay in receiving your payment.  You can update your address and bank details in writing or via the online service. We can also accept changes of address (but not bank details) over the telephone, subject to verification being provided.  Please note that we are unable to accept changes to either address or bank details via email.
