Are royalties part of income, when counting the sum in the application?
Royalties paid by Teosto is not included in the income of a music performer when applying for the Covid grant, as it is not income received as a music performer but income received as a creator of music. Gramex royalties, on the other hand, are based on the use of recorded musical performances, so they are the revenue generated by the performer of the music.
