Thank you for any help you can provide.
#1;you need to report it on your SCh C of 1040 line 10, sine the company is not your non employee and you do not issue 1099 to the company, to deduct it as your operating biz exp on your return.aqlso,Discounts you offer to your customers are deductible in certain situations. The discount must be taken from the commission you receive on the transaction. If the discount is underwritten by a hotel, airline, rental car company or other vendor, it is no longer deductible for the travel agent.
#2;as mentioned above uNLESS you hired the company as an independent contractor for you, you do not need to issue 1099 to the company but you may deduct it as fee on your return.
