Royalty rate database – what are your options?
Article – July 2020 | RoyaltyRange
The RoyaltyRange database provides you with quick and easy access to the latest royalty rates from real third-party licensing agreements. Whether you need instant access to market royalty rates or you want us to develop a detailed report of the royalty rate range for your product, you can use our database in the way that best suits you. In this article, we’ll outline the different options for accessing our royalty rate database, helping you choose the option that’s most efficient for you.
Search for royalties as and when you need them
If you’re a transfer pricing, licensing, valuation or litigation professional, you’ll probably work with royalty rates on a regular basis. As such, you need a royalty rate database that you can dip into whenever you need it, so that you always have the latest royalty rates at your fingertips. Our database subscriptions are designed specifically for professionals that need ongoing and regular access to recent royalty rates data. So, if you need to perform royalty rate searches on a regular basis, a subscription is the most cost-effective and convenient way for you to use our database.
We offer three subscription tiers for our royalty rate database: Standard, Business and Enterprise.
With each of our subscription options, you get:
- 12 months of unlimited database searches
- Live training to help you get the most from your subscription
- Live chat support so that you’re never left stranded
- Plus lots of bonus features with our Business and Enterprise tiers
To help you choose which subscription tier works best for you, here are your subscription options.
Use the database just this once
We know that not everyone needs ongoing database access. Perhaps you’re conducting a one-off analysis for your company and you need reliable comparables data to draw on, or you’re about to enter negotiations for a licensing agreement and you need to know the market rates for your intellectual property. As such, you only need to search our royalty rate database once.
For one-off projects like these, we suggest you use our One Search service. This lets you perform a single search in the database, rather than being tied into a subscription that you might not use.
Unlike our subscriptions, with One Search, we perform the searches on your behalf. This is so that we can make sure you only see royalty rates and licensing agreements that are relevant to your search, and potentially comparable to your transaction. You tell us your search criteria, and then we perform the search and send you an easy-to-read report of the results within a few hours.
To see if One Search is a good fit for your project, find out more about how it works.
Find industry benchmarks and market rates
Sometimes, you need more than just royalty rates data. You need someone to analyze it for you, so that you can instantly see whether the royalty rate or transfer price you’re proposing is in line with market rates. Our benchmarking studies are designed to help professionals with neither the time nor the resources to carry out complex royalty rates analyses for licensing or transfer pricing.
Our benchmarking studies present you with an easy-to-read report that compares the licensing agreements that fall within your search criteria. Our benchmarking study service includes:
- A search of our royalty rate database, performed by us (using your search criteria)
- A comparable uncontrolled price (CUP) analysis
- A full write-up of our process and the final list of comparable agreements
- A calculation of the market rate or royalty rate range for your search
