    would anyone have any insight or past metrics used  of target bonus to net income. looking for an indicator of how much a company pays from its net income in bonuses to employees.

    IE - 

    What is a typical ratio or target bonus pool to budget net operating income income? 1 to 6? 1 to 5?

     Thank you

    In my experience, bonuses have run about 15% of net income.  It may be a higher percentage in a lower income year because of expectation of the ownership and employees of providing at least a minimum level of Christmas bonus.

    I was at an event in October and the consultants presented 16-17% pre-tax income to bonus incentives as the industry average.
