Surveyor distribution to become annual next year
From next year, Copyright Agency will be moving from bi-annual or quarterly payments to annual payments for all surveyor members. Annual payments will commence from February 2022.
This will not impact the next two payments for surveyors, the August 2021 and the February 2022 payment will remain as is.
These changes provide more time to identify correct copyright owners of the growing number of unidentified plans, which allows the Agency to maximise payments to more surveyor members.
It will provide time for surveyors to verify their entitlements to payments for those plans, as part of new processes recently introduced on the Member Portal.
The distribution frequency change will bring Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales in line with all other states nationally.
If you are a surveyor member impacted by this change, you can read instructions on our Help Centre on how to Verify a Plan and Upload Survey Plan IDs, along with answers to other Frequently Asked Questions from Surveyors.
