If you have agents that pay a team leader, a recruiter, a coach, an internal referral, or any other type of payment to another agent within your company, there is an easy way to add those payments on a commission disbursement and you can even set these up as default fees so that each time you run a commission disbursement for an agent, these additional fees automatically populate on the disbursement.

Using the pre-commission credit/debit and post-commission credit/debit sections, you can add these fees to an agent's profile so that they show up on every commission disbursement for that agent, or you can add them manually on the commission disbursement.

Here's an example:

Let's say agent Mary Smith pays a team leader 2% of her commission on all of her deals. That 2% comes directly out of Mary's commission. To add this fee, you'll add an entry either in the agents profile > commission plan and fees section, in the post-commission credit/debit section, or in the post-commission credit/debit section on the commission disbursement. It will look like this:

You'll add the item name, Team Leader, choose Debit, enter either a % or a flat fee amount, select Agent, and choose the agent from the list of agents within the company. Click the green checkbox to save and you're finished. You can use this same process on the commission disbursement to add this fee. Here is a commission breakdown example:

Brokerage Gross Commission $10,000

Agent's Commission After Split $8,000

Team Leader Fee: $160 - 2% of $8,000

Net to Broker: $2,000
Net to Agent: $7,840
Net to Team Leader: $160

Now let's say the company wants to pay a recruiter $100 on each transaction for a specific agent, but they want that payment to come out of the company dollar not out of the agent's commission. To add this fee, you'll add an entry either in the agents profile > commission plan and fees section, in the pre-commission credit/debit section, or in the pre-commission credit/debit section on the commission disbursement. It will look like this:

You'll add the item name, Recruiter choose Debit, enter either a % or a flat fee amount, select Agent, and choose the agent from the list of agents within the company and choose Before for the question, Calculate agent's commission before or after this item? Click the green checkbox to save and you're finished. You can use this same process on the commission disbursement to add this fee. Here is a commission breakdown example:

Brokerage Gross Commission $10,000

Agent's Commission After Split $8,000

Recruiter Fee: $100

Net to Broker: $1,900
Net to Agent: $8,000
Net to Team Leader: $100

You can add as many of these entries as you need to on the commission disbursement giving you literally an unlimited way to split up commissions between multiple different parties to the transaction.

Reporting 

When you split up commissions using this function, the system does not give the additional agents any sales volume or gross commission credit on the reports, they will only show a net income amount for how much they made on the transaction.
