Our office manager gets a % of our sales commission over the office target because shes not on commission and it's a way to reward her if we make extra money then so does she, yes she pay tax on it - I assume they have shown your DP their running costs ( ours don't vary that much) and if it's a small business like ours, every knows what sales are coming in and what the targets are so he will know if it's been a good 6 months or not
I'm also skeptical, by my calculations there is a huge difference between the two and they would almost be paying his salary over again (based on the 250k From first 1/4).
yes whilst retention is important it smells fishy to me
Edit: I would go option C. Counter option a) with a higher % increase,

It's just my two cents (and previous experience) but I think if your DH has only been with the company for 3 months its still early days so I would be careful. We use to get questions from sales staff why so much was $x spent on advertising/marketing/sundry expenses/ why costs had to go through in particular quarters etc......(they received a version of the financials to support their bonus) but obviously it wasn't their decision on what was spent in these areas and when it was spent.........anyway I would rather go into a situation like this aware of what could happen, I would hate to go in expecting that because I produced sales of $xx that I would be getting a particular amount, when it could be drastically different.
