What we do
The Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society is a not-for-profit membership organisation, run by writers, for writers.
Our purpose is two-fold:
We collect secondary royalties on behalf of over 85,000 writers across the UK and abroad and pay them directly to our Members, twice a year.
We campaign and lobby on issues of importance to writers both at a national and international level, to ensure that writers' rights are both recognised and rewarded.
