(b) Percentage Rent. The Percentage Rent Rate is six percent (6%). Tenant shall pay to Landlord without demand the amount, if any, by which Tenant's Gross Sales resulting from business conducted in, on, from or through the Premises during each full or partial calendar month of the Lease Term multiplied by the Percentage Rent Rate exceeds the Monthly Minimum Rent payable for that full or partial month ("Percentage Rent").

Monthly Percentage Rent, is to be paid on or before fifteen (15) days after the end of each calendar month of the Lease Term.

The term "gross sales", as used herein, means the selling price of all goods, merchandise and services sold in, upon and/or any part of the Premises by Tenant or any other person, firm or corporation, and shall include, but not be limited to, sales or charges for cash or credit regardless of collections, sales by vending devices, including coin telephone, rent income, mail or telephone orders received or filled and paid for at the Premises, all deposits not refunded to purchasers, fees, commissions, catalog sales, and sales by any subleases, concessionaire, licensee or otherwise. Excluded from gross sales shall be returns and refunds to customers and the amount of any sales tax or other excise tax imposed upon such sale and charges (but only if such sales tax, excise tax or similar tax is billed to the purchaser as a separate item). Each sale upon installment or credit shall be treated as a sale for the full price in the month during which such sale is made, regardless of the time when Tenant receives payment from its customer.

Percentage reports of gross sales are due on or before the fifteenth (15th) of each month during the Term of this Lease. Tenant shall submit to Landlord a written report, in a form prescribed by Landlord, wherein Tenant shall set forth in reasonable detail the amount of gross sales during the preceding month. Tenant shall also furnish to Landlord with each monthly gross sales report a certified copy of each retail sales tax report which the State of _____________ requires of Tenant. Within thirty (30) days after the close of each calendar year, Tenant shall tender to Landlord a written statement, certified by Tenant, setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of gross sales and a computation of the amount of percentage rent payable for each calendar year. All certificates required above shall be by an authorized officer, partner, or the owner of Tenant.

Tenant shall keep true, full and accurate books of account setting forth gross sales, together with any other information which will in any way affect the determination of rent payable hereunder. Landlord shall be allowed after five days prior notice, to inspect Tenant's books of account at the Premises and to procure audits thereof by a certified Public Accountant. If in the judgment of such accountant Tenant's books of account are incomplete or improperly reflect the information necessary to an accurate determination of the rents payable hereunder, or if the audit shall show that the reports submitted by Tenant understated Tenant's gross sales by more than three percent (3%) thereof for any year covered by audit, the costs and fees for such audit shall be paid by Tenant as additional rent hereunder. If such audit shall disclose any willful or intentional effort to understate gross sales, then, at Landlord’s option, Tenant may be required to surrender possession of the Premises under the provisions of Paragraph 27 herein.

The fixing of a portion of the rent on the percentage of sales of the business to be done by Tenant is for the sole purpose of determining the total rents to be paid by Tenant and does not create a partnership or joint venture relationship between the parties hereto. Landlord assumes no liability hereunder for the operation of the business of the Tenant.
