Spanish term or phrase: a cuenta de comisiones futuras
Durante un primer periodo de 3 meses, la MERCANTIL abonará al AGENTE como remuneración mensual la cantidad de mil libras esterlinas.

A partir del 4º mes y hasta el 9º inclusive (seis meses más) la MERCANTIL pagará al AGENTE como remuneración mensual la cantidad resultante de aplicar el 7% a todas las operaciones aceptadas por la MERCANTIL.

En ambos casos, esta remuneración pactada será a cuenta de comisiones futuras que serán regularizadas trimestralmente.

I need an interpretation of this final paragragraph. I'm not sure if it means that the money actually paid will be reckoned against what's has actually beeen earned, but teh 'ambos casos' would tend to contradict this (the first period is fixed payments but the second period is a %).

Help!

...shall be chargeable to future commissions...
Explanation:
It's possible to compute a fixed amount (which in this case seems to be a lump sum) as an "adelanto" against future income, whether a salary (in the case of trabajadores por cuenta ajena) or a commission. I assume this has to do with a "contrato mercantil". I've seen a case like this for a saleswoman.

Thanks Cecilia. But you will probably agree thast Ignacio was totally wrong about the futures commissions as this text has absolutely nothing to do with this kind of speculation!

agree  xxxDel01: only that it is "futures commissions" as in "futures interests, futures contract and futures option"
