Corporation Question

So I am fairly new at running a Corp. WE have a small corp with only a few members.

Is there a way to give access to a member so when they sell something they can check the box that allows the funds to go to the corp wallet without giving them full access to the corp funds?

You can give them access to one (or more) sections of the wallet without giving them access to all of it.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

don't think so

apart from setting taxes to 100% but people might get upset about that. You'll probadly just have to ask them to give the money to you after the sale.

Taxes will not have the desired effect in this case. Corp taxes apply to bounties and mission rewards, not market transactions which is what the OP was asking about.

Give the corp member the junior accountant and trader roles and access to one specific wallet division. (Not master, you have 6 others, that you can name individually). All assigned through Role Management interface in corp/members screen.

Put enough seed money in the particular wallet division to pay for broker's fees (assuming you are putting up sell orders). As the income from sales filters back into that same wallet division, manually transfer money to another wallet, to reduce chance of embezzlement.

The above is very sound advice. You can transfer when you feel like it and the log will show who pays into and who took out of it. Mostly there will never be huge amounts in there (nothing you will miss long term anyway) so it will proof to be a solid method to weed the dumbest corp thieves out early.

Have fun o/

Edit: Small corps with strict dictators hardly ever work out. You need to give the few you have some responsibility and trust. After all as you grow they will be the most likely picks for directors. By then the bad seeds need to be out and as you grow they will back up your decisions to the line members when you seem like a dictator to them. You can never be around 24/7 so while you are a young corp a good CEO looks at growth and builds strong relations with those he sees as capable leaders. One day you will need them so tie them to you by rewarding good initiative and actions, make them loyal and they will always be there for you.

Ahh, that sounds like exactly what I was looking to accomplish, thank you.

Fortunately we are all very close friends in the corp so far, so trust isn't an issue...so far, in fact all 4 of our members have full corp wallet access.

But it's good to figure out this kind of stuff now before we start growing, especially now that we have a couple of new people who want to start playing, people that I don't really know. The whole corp "Roles" section is a little confusing at first, as far as what kind of power a certain role really grants someone, but I think I'm starting to grasp it finally.

To answer you though, yes. When selling an item or putting it up for contract check the box that says "for corporation" or something similar.

I believe i understood your question correctly anyway.

They can have access to specific corp wallet, but the they can also get money from that wallet. When selling in the name of corp they will pay their broker fee etc from the corp too.

They need trader (station rights), access to particular corp wallet and probably accountant (global right)
