To clarify the position regarding applicability of the Payment of Bonus Act, there is a provision for payment of bonus even in the first five accounting year (following the accounting year in which the employer sells the goods produced or manufactured by him or renders services), bonus shall be payable only in respect of the accounting year in which the employer derives profit from such establishment.
As regards the details of the Act, enough material is available on the net.
