Where does your licence payment go?

The TV Licence fee is collected by An Post and distributed by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. From the TV Licence receipts, the Department pays An Post commission in respect of the TV Licence activities An Post undertakes in its role as the Minister's collection Agent.


In addition, 7% of the total revenue net of An Post's commission is paid to the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) for the operation of the Broadcasting Funding Scheme, which provides funding in support of high quality programmes on Irish culture, heritage and experience, and programmes to improve adult literacy. Revenue from this fund can be applied for by independent producers and broadcasters for specific projects of a public service nature.

All remaining revenues are paid to RTÉ.
