Applicant Semi-Annual Profile Review – August 31, 2020

The Semi-Annual Profile Review deadline is coming up on Monday, August 31, 2020.

This is an important deadline for music company applicants looking to increase their company rating.

During this review period, FACTOR only reassesses applicant profiles in the system who have requested review. Following the review company ratings may only go up. New ratings resulting from the semi-annual review take effect on October 1, 2020.

Applicants should verify that the information provided in their applicant profile is accurate and up to date. This includes providing all data in support of qualifying criteria (such as artist rosters and qualifying releases), and gross revenue.

Please note that companies cannot receive higher than a 2 or 3 rating at the Semi-Annual review. In order to achieve a rating of 4, their profile will need to be updated in time for next year’s Annual Review.
