What you have mentioned is that % of Bonus calculation. Here salary means bonus eligible salary which is 7000/- or minimum wages whichever is higher. If allocable surplus is more than bonus eligible salary for all eligible employees ( Basic and DA 21k or less in previous financial year as bonus is deferred wages ) , then bonus % will be more than 8.33%. This can be calculated in following way.

Rs. x is required to pay minimum bonus 8.33%
Therefore, allocable plus ( say A which is more than x ) can pay bonus = (x / 8.33 * A) %. If it is more than 20% then amount maximum equivalent to 20% will be paid as bonus and excess of that any amount subject to the amount of 20% bonus will be Set On.

The excess remains with the company.
In following years, if allocable surplus is less than 20%, it will be met from the excess of previous years.

Please read the section on set on and set off and you will be clear

Excess will remain in Company as Set On. Both Set On and Set Off will continue for 4 years and in the 5th year, 1st year amount will be back to company's account. This will be continuous process. Any Set On or Set Off will be adjusted with following years bonus calculation if required. As an ex-employees of Philips India I have noticed that there were years when there was set on every year for more profit / allocable surplus.

I believe you are aware of obligations under the Payment of Bonus Act (which is being subsumed in Code on Wages,2019) which involves preparation/filing of various Forms-A,B,C,D and a format for arriving at 'Allocable Surplus' as per provisions of Sec.2(4) fo the PoB act inter-alia includes 'set-off/set-on' procedures. Soon after the preparation of your Final Accounts, you'll arrive at the 'Allocable Surplus'. I have attached useful notes on the subject which may be some guidelines at this juncture.

Now I'm giving OT/Transport/Medical or any allowance in the name of bonus of last year or current year advance.

I understand that govt only wants that bonus must be a top up on his salary. It must be extra.

So I'm free to name as benefit I pay to employee as "Mandatory Bonus".

One drivers petrol of Rs. 300 was stolen, I told him he will get back next month 7th(as part of bonus).

If paid monthly then I deduct ESI. But this amount is not same every month. But I try to pay round off figure(Rs. 3300 instead of 3270.5)

Using this way if I've paid all the bonus of last year then during Diwali whatever I pay I will show as incentive.

I'm a Proprietor with 30 employees. I'm happy with this formula and I've solved the Bonus dragnet after reading advises from all of you learned people.
