It can matter a great deal as to how large that piece is. We run on a similar system at our firm: 1. Partners get dividends in relation to the fraction of the revenue they brought it. 2. Partners also get a share (based on number of shares owned) of general company revenues that aren't included in line 1 (like sales of work by someone not a partner) 3. Partners also get improved valuation of their shares due to improved business, company assets, etc So here, it matters a great deal whether an account is assigned to you or not. I'd expect SCDPCGC to be the same.
