After a reg collects all that money from their parishioners, where does the money go next?
Here's a simple, rough concept of what happens to $2 million weekly FSO income:
$300,000 goes back to FSO for operating expenses.
$900,000 goes directly to the mother church. A lot of this will go toward legal and PI (Private Investigator) expenses, international events promoting Little Dickie and his made up accomplishments and Little Dickie pet projects where he will waste HUGE amounts of money in some sort of insane expression of self importance and power, (which deserves its own story).
$200,000 goes out in refund requests made by public who want their money back even though it means disconnection from other church members.
$250,000 is paid out in commissions and SCAs (rebates).
$200,000 goes into a local account for legal emergencies like the Lisa McPherson trial which completely emptied this account a few years ago
$150,000 payments for royalties, trademark use, the use of training films, etc.
And here is a rough outline on what the FSO does with the $300,000 the FBO transfered back to them to survive on:
$150,000 - used for the printing and mailing of promotion
$32,000 - staff allowance/pay for 800 staff. The staff will use 90% of this for hygiene items, food, drinks, cigarettes and uniform parts
$38,000 - funding for recruit and money making tours (includes hall rentals)
$15,000 - phone costs for sales and call in (arrivals)
$25,000 - medical
$10,000 - immigration handling expenses
$5,000 - the handling of staff who go nuts or otherwise need to be shipped out
$5,000 - security equipment. You can never have too many cameras and hidden microphones
$15,000 - course materials, getting their e-meters certified, etc.
$5,000 - misc things like paper and ink for printing internal issues, mailing out account statements to public, etc.
