# Budget Question

I

I have added a budget item of £150 per year. When I view the item within
the cash flow forecast for the next 12 months it is showing payments of £50
for October, November and December and £12.50 per month for the 1st nine
months of next year.

I was hoping to get £12.50 for every month.

Can anybody explain the logic that Money V14 is using?

Thanks

Yeah, the logic is £150 per year. 3 months to go, so it's split it over the
three months equally. Next year it's split it into £12.50/month, although
you're not seeing the final 3 months of that year (if you did, then you'd
have 12.50x12 = 150)

If you're after £12.50/month, then you'd need to set it as a monthly
expense, rather than a yearly one. However, to handle it as you are doing,
reallocate £37.50/month for the final 3 months of this year to reduce the
numbers.

Thank you, either of your workarounds would do the trick. The next obvious
question which I'm sure I've seen on here before is about changing the
budget year. We are embarking on a major life style change so have produced
a budget from 1/10; hence the £150 per year. We were meaning the year from
1/10.
