How are the tips divided between the servers and the kitchen in your restaurant?

Hi, We are a new restaurant and all the staff are fighting over what share the kitchen staff should get of the tips at the end of each service. All tips are cash. Thanks!

it depends on what the servers decide where I worked some shared tips with bus personnel some didn't. The servers who did share tips got tables cleaned faster resulting in more customers and more tips.

Tips are not divided in my restaurant. The servers bear the tax obligation, and are taxed at payroll and required to disclose their tips, or they are taxed on percentage of sales. If they tip the kitchen, it is their choice. They are not required to.

I've never heard of having to tip the kitchen staff. They make usually make around 10-12 an hr.
