Hello - I am ramping up my business, and since I'm thinking about forming a new segment as an LLC, I have a question about that. I am learning about LLCs, and I am wondering if you can "customize" the distribution of the profits generated by the business. I see where many companies segment the profits generated into different percentages tied to different members, all spelled out in the operating agreement. But my questions is this - can those distributions be tied not to a percentage of the profits, but to how the money was earned? I ask this because different members will have different roles, and their duties that lead to revenue will fluctuate quite a bit month to month. Can you "customize" what each member pulls out month to month, and tie it somehow to what portion of work they did?
For instance, let's say that an LLC is made up of programmers. One programmer does work that pulls in revenue that is much higher than any other member of the LLC. But it would be hard to tie this to a fixed percentage of the profits in the operating agreement because that percentage would vary from month to month.
