Used for distribution of a commission.

If there are several direct participants in a participation constellation of a commission case, they share the commission according to one of the following distribution categories:

  • Activity participation: Each participant initially receives the full valuation and uses this to calculate his/her remuneration depending on the terms of his/her individual contract. Irrespective of the distribution category, this calculation variant is always used for all top leading participants (participants without any higher-level participants within the same entitlement group).
  • Base value splitting: The secondary participants are assigned the remuneration types of the leading participant. However, each participant makes his/her calculation on the basis of the terms of his/her own agreement. The difference to activity participation is that in the case of a secondary participant, activities that lead to corresponding remuneration might be forbidden, meaning that the participant can never receive this remuneration in his/her own right. Secondary participants thus only receive such remuneration if they have a leading participant.
  • Result value splitting: Initially the full valuation is assigned just to the leading participant, and the calculation is made on the basis of the terms of his/her individual contract. After the calculation has been made, the remuneration results are distributed to the secondary participants on the basis of the share distribution agreement. (In this case, no difference commission is calculated between participants of an entitlement group. However, difference commission is calculated for subordinate entitlement groups).

Initially the participation category only governs the origin of the entitlement (with the exception of result value splitting; see above). Accordingly, the entitlement can only be reduced through a distribution share. In this case, the entitlement values of the participant are reduced on the basis of the results type and the related update category.

With the difference commission calculation type, the remuneration of the subordinate and entitlement-triggering participants can be deducted (rule categories "16" and "17" in detail items). Again, the entitlement can be reduced on the basis of the results type and the related update category.


See also share of direct remuneration and share of indirect remuneration, depending on entries made for the participants in the commission case or on the constellation.

Special forms

A differentiation is made between a direct and an indirect distribution category for direct and indirect remuneration shares.
