    Let's suppose they sell 10'000 licenses in the first 3 months at 100€ each, that is something we can expect.
    That is 1'000'000€!!!

    I wanna develop a forum platform too!!! :D

    Well, putting in what they've paid for hosting, as well as the time they've put in, seems like they'd deserve it. :p And it's not like they'd be ripping us off or anything.

    You might want to, but I doubt it would have the near-overnight success this seems like it will get. ;) Still, no counting the chickens before they hatch!

    I certainly hope they do become rich but even with a perfect product it can sometimes be hard.

    I think they will be OK but there are non-product things that can make it hard at times.

    It won't be instant but I hope they become rich out of this, if ever anyone deserved it, they do.

    That's a fast calculation, have you thought at:
    • the taxes (TVA and annual taxations)
    • their own monthly salaries
    • the functionning costs (host, ...)
    That doesn't lead to the 1 000 000€ you are stating at the end of that ;)
    And remember that once a licence is sold, you have to wait a year for renewal (if it works like that) before receiving another batch of money.

    And of course you have to sell 10.000 licenses first, that's quiet a sum.

    You need budgets for marketing, advertising, investing, development, hiring employee and staff, leasing an office, private parties with customers who have over 1,000 posts, etc.

    Getting your first 100 customers I suspect is going to be easy. Getting the first 2,500 is a goal.
    Turning that 2,500 into 25,000 in a period of three years to remain profitable is a challenge.

    No matter how many they sell for what price and what costs they have. It's not really our business besides that we hope it is a successful business for them. It only makes me feel that when money flows there's a future in the development of the product, which means that I benefit from that for my web site.

    Totally agree, that means the platform is fair enough and users appreciate it so your websites are more attractive :)

    Net Sales wise yes, but not in terms of gross profit or net income

    Keep in mind a lot of that money goes back into developing the product. :)

    Taxes take more than some people know and the costs for support can be quite high as well.

    Taxes here in italy are the 50% of what you earn.
    I think they are not so high there anyway =)

    No, Tax in the UK takes about 25% of your income... however this is a limited company so the company will be taxed and then so with Kier and Mike when they withdraw their salary.

    As others have said $1,000,,000 sounds nice, but when you take into consideration that there is three people in the team, Mike, Kier Ashley... They have running costs, taxes etc and that with a product like this they never know if sales will drop for a while before the renewals are due and they pick back up it's not that much...

    Also 10,000 is quite a lot of sales in that period, but even so I hope they manage it because the more financially sound the company is the longer we will see them developing a great product.

    I'm quite sure that after all they will come back home with just some great salary. Something in the range of 100k€/year.

    Tax in the UK is a pain - but I'm guessing as the guys are producing a good (as opposed to a service) they can claim relief from VAT so that should help them - not us though :(

    They still have to pay corporation tax, which I think is around 19%, plus NI contributions, plus all the other stuff people have mentioned.

    For individuals it is 23% at the lower level and 40% at its highest
    oh and you also have to pay NI contributions...
