2019 Royalties from ESA Publications

Below are some pointers to help you understand your statement and payment advice.

  • The royalty for a book is based on:

    1. Your royalty percentage for the book

    2. Net invoice value for all sales of the book during 2019

  • In your Statement, one of the first entries dated approx 14 February is your 2018 royalty payment with the amount in the paid column (some dates may differ slightly).

  • Your statement may show an amount from Copyright Licensing NZ (CLNZ or CLL) where part of your book has been photocopied under license at a licensed school and picked up in a survey.

  • The payment advice gives details of each of your titles/editions.

  • A description like "AY11AC8-2" means (reading left to right) A=AME workbook, Y11=Year 11/Level 1, AC=Accounting, 8=8th edition and 2=2nd printing (first reprint).

  • If the description is an ISBN number, the book is a custom Learning Workbook which is either a single AS booklet or a combination of Achievement Standards from several Learning Workbooks used for a year under license or printed and sold as a print book.

  • A negative sales quantity/royalty are old edition books returned/credited from a bookshop.

  • "PNG/OUP” is a royalty from one of 20 ESA Study Guides adapted for Papua New Guinea by Oxford University Press, Australia.
