# Im trying to create a formula that will calculate various

### Customer Question

I'm trying to create a formula that will calculate various commission splits at certain thresholds.

Example: One could create multiple thresholds depending on the personal structure of various agents.

Agent A could have the following splits/thresholds:

Threshold 1 - Up to \$250K - 50% (or whatever one may choose)
Threshold 2 - \$250,001 - \$600K - 60%
Threshold 3 - \$600,001 - \$750K - 70%
Threshold 4 - \$750,001 - \$1M - 80%
Threshold 5 \$1,000,001 - up - 90%

Agent B could have varying thresholds/splits and could be input as such.

So, I need a formula that upon entering an agents "gross commission", the cells will populate with the proper "net" splits to the agent

So, if Agent A earned \$400K in gross commissions, \$250K would be at 50%, and \$150K would be at 60% - so "net" to agent would be \$215K (\$125K + \$90K).

Any ideas?

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

Ill write this for you, give me 10 minutes please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Great - will you have a spreadsheet with the cells created so I can work on it?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Yes, it is done and you can download it from www.wikisend.com

Under File ID 899564

The Formula is in B2

Let me know if you have any difficulties please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Okay, that works for the parameters given - I want to be able to select different parameters depending on the individual agents structure. So, another agent could have different thresholds and split levels.

So, say I wanted threshold 1 to be \$200K, or \$300K - and the split level could go to 80% after threshold 3, which may be \$500K.

I want to be have flexibility with how I set the parameters whereas this locks me into those set.

Looks good, what if I wanted to add one more threshold, say, at 1.2M (or whatever is selected)

then, I think we're there!

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Then you would need to reprogram the formula Brett, there is no automated way to do this.

Or just come back here and have me do it :)

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
