Profit interest is an excellent tool for two main reasons. First, distributions are based on profit shares on a „distribution threshold,“ i.e. .dem value of the company at the time of the award of the profit share. The beneficiary of the profit interest does not receive distribution as long as the other members receive distributions up to the distribution threshold. As a result, the recipient does not receive a distribution of its profit shares until the company has increased in value from the date of the grant. In this way, profit shares are really incentive units, because they encourage the owner to increase the value of the business. Second, there are no direct tax consequences for the interest recipient. Normally, when a person is compensated as equity, it is immediately taxed as a normal income on the value of the equity they receive. As far as profit interest is concerned, the beneficiary is only taxed when he or she actually receives a distribution. This is obviously beneficial to the beneficiary because he or she is not taxed on „income“ before he or she actually receives such „income“. The award agreement is the agreement between the company and the beneficiary of interest on profits, which grants the bearer its shares of profits.
