It might be an idea to set up a discretionary trust for the business (if travel agents are allowed to trade via a trust) so that you can distribute the income as you see fit. There is a bit to it but your accountant will be able to advise on this.

Alternatively set up a commission structure that takes into account the sales $, gross profit, or number of tours each partner signs up. In my experience calculating commission on gross profit is a good way of allocating remuneration. You are not rewarding a person for potentially making a loss even though the sales dollars involved may be quite high.
