Royalty Auditing

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

Granting the intellectual property of a good or product to third parties, upon payment of a Royalty, does not protect against possible violations. If you have granted the use of a trademark or intellectual property in general to others, we can ascertain whether the terms of this contract are respected and if you are paid the correct figures.

Group Top Secret’s legal and accounting experts carry out royalty auditing activities through accounting investigations and inspections of an economic, financial and administrative nature.

These punctual checks verify that the licensee has counted and paid to the licensor the royalties due on the turnover achieved and that he has fulfilled all the other obligations of an economic and qualitative content, in strict compliance with the provisions of the license agreement signed between the parties, such as for example, the guarantee of compliance with certain quality standards in the productions obtained under license.

Why Royalty Auditing Investigations are very important

Demonstrating the violation of one of the terms of the assignment agreement is not enough, because the evidence collected by a detective agency is essential for

  • Overcoming difficulties in correctly estimating compensation
  • Obtain adequate compensation
  • Avoid serious economic damage to your business

The authority that must establish compensation for damages must always try to estimate the amount with rigorous accuracy. But without certain and irrefutable evidence, the real risk is that the amount of any compensation is lower (even by much) than what you would be entitled to.

Lincensing e Roylaties

Intellectual Property development strategies often take the form of license agreements through which the owner of an intangible asset, i.e. trademarks, patents, intellectual property rights or know-how, grants to a third party, the licensee, the right to exploit it within the limits set by the contract, in exchange for an economic consideration: this sum of money is called a royalty.

It is clear that royalty revenues from industrial property licensing are a significant source of income.

However, the license agreement may give rise to fraud and misconduct of various kinds deriving from intentional breach of contractual clauses by the licensee.

These failures are often attributable to the licensee’s desire not to recognize, in full, the amount due to the owner of the intellectual property.

It follows that the spread of licensing contracts has given rise to the increasing use of royalty auditing in order to verify compliance with the contractual conditions.
