Thank you in advance for the advice!

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fairly divvy percentage interests for a start up catering company? Is there a formula or a way to calculate what percentages should go?

Thanks again!

    I see this is your first post - so welcome.
    Ultimately, how you divide up the interests in a private company is "what all parties can agree upon".
    Remember that there are really several parts to be determined-
    1. Control - who & how decisions are made
    2. Equity - the actual ownership of the company
    3. Distribution of the results - how profits (or losses)will be disbursed
    For those that will be actively working in the business - there is also the issue of compensation.
    Hope this helps. If you want to discuss your specific situation, feel free to drop me a PM or contact me directly.
