ASCAP Reporting Form for 2023

ASCAP Reporting Form for 2023

The Barbershop Harmony Society has a blanket agreement with ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) to pay significantly reduced licensing fees for all U.S. chapters and ensuring their legal compliance for live, in-person public performances of the songs represented by ASCAP.

As a friendly reminder, All U.S. Chapters and Districts must complete an annual ASCAP Reporting Form and submit it (with corresponding payment, if applicable) by the end of each calendar year.

If your chapter is not producing any shows (free, benefit or ticketed) with live, in-person public performances during the year 2023, a form is still required by completing Section A.

Districts, if you hosted or produced a show as a part of your convention, or perhaps had a show as a part of a youth event, you are liable for an ASCAP report and applicable fee. Otherwise, please complete Section A.

U.S. Chapters paying only the minimum fee for 2023 can now pay their fee with a credit card:

  • Add the ASCAP Report Form to your order cart. After payment you will receive an email with your receipt and a prompt to download the 2023 Report form to download, complete, and save to your device.
  • Email your completed form with your Order Number (or copy of your Order) to library@barbershop.org .
  • The Music Library will confirm receipt via email to you.

U.S. Chapters who wish to pay via check can download the report form, complete, then mail with payment to:

Attn: Music Library
Barbershop Harmony Society
110 7th Avenue North
Nashville, TN 37203-3704

U.S. Chapters with no scheduled in-person shows in 2022 can email their completed report form to library@barbershop.org .

If you have not yet submitted your 2022 ASCAP Reporting Form and applicable payment, please do so as soon as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: BMI/SESAC Show Clearance Forms/Payments for U.S. Chapters are to be sent to districts (or their assignee) for processing for each in-person show produced by your group. Districts may also use this form for show/event reportings.

Canadian Chapters/Districts: SOCAN/Entandem reporting requirements must be satisfied by your group for public performances. Do not utilize ASCAP or BMI/SESAC report forms for this.
