AUthority to REgister on behalf of artist
We require documentation showing that the artist has given you the authority to register on their behalf. Please provide any documentation supporting this, such as a PoA (POWER OF ATTORNEY) or Artist Agreement. You may also use the ACTRA RACS Authorized Representative Form or PoA Appointment Form.
To verify the artist’s identity, we’ll need to review a piece of government-issued identification. Please provide a photo of the artist’s identification and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Completing the Direct Deposit Form will provide ACTRA RACS with the details needed to issue your royalty payments directly into a bank account. Please return the completed form to email@example.com to finalize direct deposit.
