While royalty, licensing, joint venture, and profit participation agreements present great revenue opportunities, protecting property rights and managing the accuracy of royalty and profit reports present significant challenges. EisnerAmper’s Royalty Audit & Contract Compliance team is a dedicated group of professionals with the expertise and experience to assist clients in protecting intellectual properties and recovering underpaid royalties and profits.
For licensors, licensees, and other parties to such an agreement, there are substantial benefits associated with verification that reports issued pursuant to the governing agreements are fairly presented, truthful and in accordance with the Agreement’s provisions. Licensors should collect all amounts they’re entitled to; licensees should not overpay. Furthermore, clients often need information on certain non-monetary activities of their licensees or partners in order to protect the value and integrity of their intellectual properties. EisnerAmper’s professionals can help prevent revenue slippage and provide essential information on the activities of our clients’ licensees and/or partners; the members of our team have a proven track record of delivering results.
While conducting royalty and contract compliance audits, we creatively look for ways to identify opportunities for potential recoveries. We also identify potential improvements to internal controls and develop internal policies for licensees that will help to ensure accuracy in future reporting.
