Please take a moment to read our FAQ’s and find out what information should be included in a cue sheet, how SOCAN uses the cue sheet to pay you, who is responsible for submitting cue sheets to SOCAN, and more:  SOCAN Audiovisual Cue Sheet FAQs

Do you need to complete a SOCAN Audiovisual Cue Sheet? You must download and save the cue sheet to your local drive/desktop to enable functionality.

For the most accessible experience, use the Excel sheet instead of the Apple Numbers cue sheet (and if you are using a screen reader, use NVDA or JAWS).
