GEMA Aktionsjahr

This is what a GEMA member­ship costs for creators

As a composer or lyricist, you pay an admission fee of €107.10 (incl. VAT, net €90.00). Your annual membership fee amounts to €50.00.

  • We love newcomers!

    All creators who turn 30 of age or younger in the year of application for membership and submit their application by 31 October of the current year pay only the membership fee of €50.00. The one-time admission fee of €107.10 (incl. VAT, net €90.00) is waived. So you save right from the start!

    Membership for applications that reach us from 1 November of the current year begins on 1 January of the following year accordingly.
