I own a horse transportation company, a few years ago I was offered a pretty big account. The farm owner wanted to know if I could bill his customers directly, then pay the farm owner a percentage. I told him if he wanted money from transportation charges that he would need to pay me directly, then he could add on whatever he wanted when he billed his customers. Needless to say, I didn't get the account. I wonder if the company who hauls for the barn now is giving a kickback to the owner?
I know I did the right thing, what would you have done?
