By completing this survey, you enable UK Music and its member organisations to be more effective in speaking to government about issues that impact you. This would not be possible without us collecting hard economic data, tracked over time, to demonstrate how music contributes to the UK economy. This is why we ask you to complete this survey each year. This information will also help our member organisations research the music industry and advocate on behalf of their members.

This survey asks about your 2021 income. While things did open up more in 2021 compared to 2020, the pandemic continues to disrupt opportunities for music creators. By understanding the challenges that remain, the industry will be better able to support music creators. Your participation is especially important to this.

You also have the opportunity to win a £100 voucher for Amazon or music stores GAK and PMT.

This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

To ensure that the data we capture is as accurate as possible, we ask that you refer to your financial records before completing the survey. We also recommend that you look through the questions first to ensure you have the necessary information to hand.
