Since 2012, MACP has encouraged members to provide their bank accounts for direct payment of royalties into their bank accounts. This is to expedite payment to members and eliminate any possibility of cheques fraudulently altered due to intercepted mails. Whilst many members have since complied, we note that there are still members who have yet to provide MACP with their bank details.
Please be informed that with IMMEDIATE EFFECT, all royalty payments will be credited into the members’ bank accounts. This service is free to all members for credit by Interbank Giro.
