NZ Music Export Survey

This project has been commissioned by Recorded Music NZ, APRA AMCOS  and the New Zealand Music Commission and is supported by NZ on Air, Te Mangai Paho, Independent Music NZ (IMNZ), the Music Managers' Forum (MMF) and Creative New Zealand. The project partners thank you for your assistance with this project. 

The project partners have commissioned PwC to undertake a study on the contribution of the New Zealand music industry to New Zealand’s economy and to estimate the export revenue earned by New Zealand artists. The findings of the study will help the industry organisations demonstrate how important New Zealand music is to the New Zealand economy and engage with government more meaningfully as your music representatives.

This is an online survey that will take about 20 minutes to complete and it will be helpful to have your financial information before you start. The results of the survey will only be reported in an aggregated form. No individual earnings or responses will be published. Your responses will be confidential.

What do I need?
In order to complete the survey, you will need information on your income from music over the last five financial years. It is intended that this survey is completed by either music managers on behalf of their clients or a solo artist or a representative from a group directly (ie one response for the whole group). Financial representatives (eg accountant) with artist/management authorisation can also complete the forms on behalf of their clients.

If you are a music manager or non-artist representative, you will need to complete the survey for each artist or group you represent. If you would prefer to complete an Excel spreadsheet please contact PwC for a template (details below).

Prize draw
The key to getting a robust study is getting a large sample. The more responses we collect, the more accurate the results of the study. To incentivise participation in the survey, Recorded Music is administering a prize draw for $500 cash. All completed responses enter the draw to win, just follow the instructions at the end of the survey.

If you have any queries about the survey or its purpose, please contact Damian Vaughan, Chief Executive, Recorded Music NZ, 09 361 6874 or damian@recordedmusic.co.nz. For technical queries or to receive an Excel spreadsheet template, please contact Melanie Luen, PwC, 09 355 8635 or melanie.a.luen@nz.pwc.com.
