What is the enterprise's side of a partnership deal?

  • A commitment to use the Developers for on-going development, as a minimum proportion of gross profit.
  • When development expenditure falls below the agreed proportion of gross profit, any deferred development costs make up the difference.

For example, if the agreed proportion of gross profit for a particular month is £1,000, that can either pay for £1,000 of development work, pay off £1,000 of the deferred portion of an invoice, or a split between the two.  It means that deferred fees are only paid off gradually without ever raising the project's costs above the agreed proportion of gross profit.
