Why does a franchisee have to pay a percentage of their turnover to the franchisor?
Charging a percentage of turnover is a common way for a franchisor to obtain payment in return for granting the right to operate the business to a franchisee.
A franchisor will want to ensure a return on its investment and will want to incentivise its franchisees to continue to develop the business. A turnoverbased royalty is an effective way of doing this.
Before taking on a franchise, a franchisee should always thoroughly investigate the payments due under the franchise agreement, including whether the franchisor can increase the payments due from the franchisee.
In addition to any turnover royalty, a franchisee can also expect to pay an initial fee on signing the franchise agreement. A franchisee may also be expected to pay an advertising fee, which will be collected separately from the above fees and be used for advertising campaigns to promote the franchise generally.
