The more I've read into it in various online places it's more like a tax the government is imposing from companies benefiting from playing music in the workplace, by either helping their customers enjoy their experience in their shop or premises or by their staff being stimulated in the workplace more. This is seen as a benefit to the company and that benefit has to be shared to others.

Yes and as soon as your on their hook you get Phonographic Performace Ltd (PPL) after you for their cut. You don't get away with paying just one of them. And turns out they are deep rooted into the government with all their policies and are a vested interest to the government.

no question Scoff ..... and TBH, gives a very respectable performance, once mastered plus a degree of flexibility to be tinkered with ... it's so simple and despite what the nay sayers say, very controllable, if you can handle your machine

Most reputable factories (I work in one) pay it but I never heard of them going after many small businesses. Never heard of anybody being taken to court either. Once you start paying you can't very well stop. I'd be keeping my hand in my pocket.

Be careful here, there are many scammers who have latched onto this one, never part with cash or money of any kind without a written bill, question question question!!

As for the taxing of workshop radio's I think its a fucking scandal, when working under a lorry, digger or any other machine for that matter sometimes its the radio that is the only thing that is keeping a workers sanity intact, let those fuckers who dream this shit up get their arses out of their cosy office and work for a month in the depth of winter as a fitter/mechanic, they would soon change their tune!!!

Mr Angry has finished ranting!!
