Re: Found another bug in the budget 2009

Thanks, Jaap.

I asked several people to review it prior to sending. I appreciate you taking the time to walk through it and check all the calculations.

You might also want to check the "Wages and Travel" sheet. I think
Payroll taxes and Concrete goals are costs. So they should be
negative. Let's hope I'm wrong here because that would mean around
8600$ more cost

That is $8600 more cost. It's what I estimated for US payroll taxes.  (There are other things that will balance it out now - for example, my travel will not be $20K this year.)

Can you also elaborate on what the "Discretionary bonus" and the
"Concrete goals" are? Furthermore for what was the 1750$ Discretionary
bonus payed?
I have goals and get a quarterly performance review and bonus based on performance. Perhaps those should be shared publicly.

A couple of notes on the budget.
  • Starting next fiscal year (which starts Oct 1st) we'll be doing the budget by the fiscal year.
  • Starting next fiscal year, Rosanna will be doing the budget in gnucash. (Which is where we currently keep all of our actual information.) Hopefully we'll also have figured out how to easily take out the confidential information by then too so we can just share that.
