(1) From 2018, the library part (ex-CT 6a) will be listed under CT 5. CT 6 (b) will only include the public lending right share for the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Not all payments made by Prolitteris to sister societies could be taken into account in the 2017 financial statements.
The distribution amounts shown for the individual societies generally reflect the figures given in the annual accounts of the society concerned.
Differences may arise in respect of the total income for a particular year account of the fact that not all societies record that income received from dirtibution among themselves in the same period.

The distribution amounts shown for the individual societies generally reflect the figures given in the annual accounts of the society concerned. Exceptions to this rule apply in the case of SUISA, for which the tariff incomes are shown as gross amounts and SSA where incomes are not always recorded in the same reporting period.
Differences may arise in respect of the total income for a particular year account of the fact that not all societies record that income received from distribution among themselves in the same period.

(1) CT8: as of 1.1.2017 this CT contains partial tariffs CT8 I, II, VII. The school share (ex-CT8 III) is now included in CT7 KV.
(2) The larger amount reported under "distribution by ProLitteris" represents reserves released from prior years which flowed into the distribution.

The distribution amounts shown for the individual societies generally reflect the figures given in the annual accounts of the society concerned.
Differences may arise in repsect of the total income for a particular year account of the fact that not all societies record that income received from dirtibution among themselves in the same period.

**the contributions to foundations for social and cultural purposes are distributed to rightholders or serve to finance cultural projects in accordance with the rules of these organs.

As a result of the ongoing complaint procedure concerning CT 12, the Societies posted the income differently in their accounts as of 2017, and - with the exception of ProLitteris - have not distributed the amounts to rightholders yet.
The distribution amounts shown for the individual societies generally reflect the figures given in the annual accounts of the society concerned. Exceptions to this rule apply in the case of SUISA, for which the tariff incomes are shown as gross amounts and SSA where incomes are not always recorded in the same reporting period.
Differences may arise in respect of the total income for a particular year account of the fact that not all societies record that income received from distribution among themselves in the same period.
