ROYALTY DESKTOP ANALYTICAL REVIEW
This is often carried out in advance, or instead, of carrying out a full royalty audit. We review and analyse the royalty statements rendered to you, based upon our interpretation of your agreement, and without checking source data at the licensee’s offices. Review governing agreement(s) and royalty statements and submit a proposal with costing to you.
Once terms are agreed, we data process your royalty statements to generate a database incorporating a complete royalty history. Summarise your agreement(s), discussing interpretation with your legal representatives if necessary, carry out the agreed tests at our offices and prepare and submit our report to you. This will quantify any apparent under-accountings. We will also recommend whether a full audit is likely to be viable and cost.
We monitor and review royalty statements as they are received on an ongoing basis.
ROYALTY ADMINISTRATION & ACCOUNTING
For smaller companies it is not always cost-effective to employ a dedicated staff to carry out this important function, however, royalty accounting is a specialised area, and can be time consuming, therefore it is best undertaken by those with the relevant skills.
