Each contact person, chosen to act on behalf of the company, must provide a copy of an official identification document and sign the registration form.
Each contact person will be granted a login and password to access AGICOA’s web portal IRRIS (International Rights Royalty Information System). Different accesses exist to view and/or update the data. Every authorized contact person can have a different power of attorney.
Mailing list receiver
Please indicate who is responsible for receiving communications from AGICOA on the three different topics listed on the form.
It is mandatory to indicate one person for each topic, but it can of course be the same person.
If the beneficiary name of the bank account is different from the company name, tight money laundering legislation in Switzerland requires an explanation. Please provide a written explanation and any documents clarifying the situation to AGICOA.
AGICOA generally pays the royalties in EUR, however, we can also pay royalties in the following currencies, depending on the country of distribution: PLN, NOK and SEK. Make sure that your bank account accepts different currencies. You can also register multiple bank accounts. You can send page 5 of the registration form separately for every bank account you want to register. For each bank account, an official bank account document, on the bank’s letterhead, is required for audit purposes.
AGICOA do not accept banking details for correspondent/intermediary banks. In order to make a payment, the account number that corresponds to the final Beneficiary is required. For more details, contact your bank. They will be able to give you detailed instructions for international payments and please provide these instructions with the registration form.
The form must always be countersigned by a person(s) who, according to the commercial register, is authorized to act on behalf of the company. This person can act as an operational contact in all matters related to AGICOA, or not. As with other contacts, we need an official identification document with a clearly visible signature for audit purposes.
