Know before you begin

  • The date of activity on royalty payments does not have the same 2 week payment processing restriction as Honoraria
  • Royalties do not include services
    • Example: If a photographer takes photos for the school, this is service, not royalties. Rights to use the photos are royalties
    • When paying a photographer for services and royalties, use two separate P2I forms
