%age of bonus can be calculated once the balance sheet is prepared and depending upon the available surplus arrived at on set on set off formula. As suggested by learned colleague above, bonus is paid with in 8 months after the completion of balance sheet. Yes you are right, many companies pay bonus @ 20% from the beginning of the company and it paid during the infancy period as a part of CTC and accordingly you can also pay bonus(which would be called ex gratia payment)
