How to model variable income from bonuses - Australia

Bonuses are calculated annually and will grow in line with employment income, as set in the Employment Basics screen Growth Rate


If bonuses need to be grown at a different rate than income or entered as a fixed amount, consider entering them as a separate item from the main employment income. 

If you need to increase or decrease bonuses in the future, you can do so using the Steps facility, which allows the growth rate, bonuses, income and benefits in kind to be increased or decreased (stepped up or down) at future events. 


Events are normally used to schedule future steps. Simply select and make changes to any of the items shown that are to be stepped.


Events can be added as needed to the timeline. Double click on the Timeline to select a New Event. You can also drag and drop events to the timeline on the Time screen.
