So here?s the question: I?m the co-founder of a dev company with 1 other partner, so we have equal shares, we are still in the early stages of our journey but we have a very basic formula to our business model, basically we each take 30% (60% between the two of us) and push 40% towards marketing and other overhead costs. My partner has started a new job at another software agency and the owner of that agency wants to ?merge? with us, while my partner is working for them. So I need to work out a business model in terms of profit percentages that would be shared among me, my partner, our personal company and the new company that?s basically ?merging? with us. At the moment the other company will be paying him a salary of xx,xxx and allow him to work on our projects as well to avoid him being distracted with external work. So for example: My company will get a client, the project will then be passed on to my partner who works for the other dev company, then we split the profit either 3 ways, me, my partner, other company or just 50/50 between my company and other company. I?m not too sure how to go about this as the fact that the other company is paying his salary already to work for them so if we merge and any new projects brings in money, why would money go towards my partner if he is already getting paid to work there? I hope this makes sense?
