Harrisongs Ltd. is a music publishing company, founded by musician and songwriter George Harrison, a member of The Beatles. It is headquartered at 27 Ovington Square in London's Knightsbridge district, in the same building which houses Apple Corps.

Harrison's earliest compositions (including "Don't Bother Me", his first, which appeared on "With the Beatles" and "Meet the Beatles!") were published by Northern Songs, the company set up in 1963 by Dick James and Brian Epstein on behalf of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who were the main songwriting Beatles. Harrison and Ringo Starr had both signed contracts with Northern Songs, but neither was reportedly satisfied with their subsequent writer's royalties, or perceived low-man status with the company; Harrison wrote "Only a Northern Song" partly to comment on how Northern Songs might handle his latest offering. Harrison and Starr both let their Northern Songs contracts expire in 1968, with Harrison starting Harrisongs and Starr founding Startling Music.

Harrison's new company published his later Beatles tunes, including "Here Comes the Sun" and "Something", and his early post-Beatles solo work, including the songs from "All Things Must Pass". In 1973, Harrison assigned the publishing rights to his newest album, "Living in the Material World", to the Material World Charitable Foundation, a charitable organization he set up to aid starving countries.

His songs from 1974's "Dark Horse" onwards were originally published by Ganga Publishing, B.V. in the United States, and Oops Publishing in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world. They are now published by Umlaut Corporation, which is controlled by his widow Olivia.

Harrisongs Limited is now to be the publishing vehicle for his son Dhani Harrison and his musical project, thenewno2.
