The 'add tracks' feature of MySena has been renewed
Last year we asked MySena users, musicians and producers to take part in a user test. The display of your tracks in MySena and the way you add tracks to MySena have been renewed based on the results of that test. So what exactly has changed?
• From now on you will work in a single repertoire overview in MySena. That one repertoire overview will contain all the tracks you have added, tracks for which the addition has not yet been completed and tracks that have been rejected by Sena.
• You will be able to add a track or album directly from the repertoire overview. It has also been made even easier to add tracks.
• When adding a track or album, it will now be possible to save your progress and then continue later. This can be useful when you don't yet have all the necessary information, for example.
• From now on, producers will also be required to enter an ISRC when adding new tracks. The ISRC is a unique identifier assigned to a recording. If you are a master owner, you can request a master owner code by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use the code to create your own producer ISRC. > Read more about ISRC

Delaying factors and administration costs
It may take some CMOs longer to correctly and completely process claims. Therefore, it may be that we receive funds in 2016 for claims that have been issued in 2015 for airplay in 2014.
Sena pays the collected fees from abroad minus administration costs. For fees from EU countries, including the EFTA countries Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway, the withholding rate is 4%. For non-EU and non-EFTA countries the withholding rate is 6%.
