Business Question

I'm confused again...

What can we do with the creds our businesses make? Does that supplement our characters monthly allowance?

Re: Business Question

pretty much your business income is just that, income. now your monthly cap (formerly called allowance), is pretty much a limit of how much of that income you can spend per month on large transactions (such as ships, bulk orders of vehicles/weapons).

Re: Business Question

So if you don't have a business you don't have an allowance at all?

Because thats not stated anywhere I can see.

Re: Business Question

Ok, just to clarify any previous remarks about a monthly allowance: there is no such thing as a monthly allowance. any such reference was a miss-wording of the guideline, which has been fixed up in the guideline .

So pretty much you earn money the same old way you used to (IE: through running a business, going around doing jobs for a person or faction, being a bounty hunter, maybe just doing laundry for someone), so basically you earn money the same old way as before.
The only difference now, is that of the money you earn (for this example say you earned like 300,000,000 "7 from working for it), when you make a major purchase, you can only spend a capped amount (so of the amount you earned, you can only spend a max of 150,000,000 "7 a month, on major purchases).

I hope this has helped you understand this

cheers,
Rebecca

Re: Business Question

I do understand, but the reason that the confusion comes about is due to the Cap guidelines not mentioning where this money is supposed to come from. It seems to imply everyone has access to that amount of money without having to have a business at all. While the words may say Cap, the implication is still an allowance and with the removal of bank accounts no one is going to know if anyone is actually earning any money through any other means. I'm not meaning to be as negative as this is sounding, I'm just finding all these regulations very hard to to interpret the way I'm thinking the Guild is meaning them.

Can I suggest something? Could there be a bullet pointed list in one thread rather than several smaller posts on different threads?

Re: Business Question

well you don't necessarily need to have a business to earn an income, individuals can earn money. If ever any doubt, you can always contact the GRPEC to check a person's posts to see if they have supporting RP to back up their claims of having money.

I have already brought up the point of getting that specific guideline reworded, so will get back to you soon about it.
I will also bring up the idea of merging the guidelines into a single thread as well :)

Re: Business Question

I'm actually really glad this got brought up because after reading the rules specifically this one, I was under the impression everyone got 150,000 credits and the faction a billion per month. Obviously not so thanks.

Re: Business Question

Xeonon, those figures you have were mentioned, but never ratified, so to speak. They probably should not have been made public at so early a juncture, as they (and other items) caused much unnecessary consternation. I certainly hope these new FAQs address most concerns or uncertainities, but if not we are happy to clarify.
