It's not the amount of money up front that you get, nor is it the royalty % that ought to rivet your attention. The real question is how much of whatever you get will you be able to keep? I just finished paying .43 cents on the dollar back to the government- that's a hefty bite out of the proceeds before any royalties have started to flow.
The expertise of knowledgeable accountants should have been sufficient. It was not. I have been getting all sorts of conflicting advice from professionals who should know, and apparently they don't! If there are folks with some accounting background/experience in our midst, boy could we all use your insights.
Thanks in advance,
