I'd just like to say that my wage slip today shows I got a massive annual bonus of £84.63 after tax & NI.

I'm sure the RBS staff are jealous...

Lots of people dont even get a bonus.

Bonus is a dirty word these days and is almost a bad as the word Expenses. I would spend yours now before Darling taxes it or Brown gives it to a good cause.

What's a wage slip?

I've only been getting them for the last 3 years, before that I worked for 15 years in retail and never had a sniff of a bonus, the only perk being £3 towards a Christmas party...

I get a monthly bonus dependant on how much tonnage i produce that's above budget.
I have no problem with bonuses or incentive schemes if they are paid according to how much profit you make.
But, paying one, no matter how much money you lose, especially if it's the tax payers is just plain wrong. Profit = bonus.

Borrowing money at 0%-0.5% and then lending it out at 6%-29% does not need a sharp financial brain as a short-sighted baboon with rheumatism could not fail. Ironically it is our money that they are lending back to us and charging us for the pleasure of borrowing it. Of course the bankers will chirp that it is their Foreign Inv. Div. that has contributed the most...would that be the same Division that rescued RBS when they were in deep doo-doos? Rat+smell+a+I (rearrange to suit).

Heard on the radio this morning that RBS ( 84% owned by the taxpayer ) is set to announce a £5 billion loss and will be paying £1.7 billion in bonuses. Words fail me

My bonus system is quite simple, I do 3 jobs on site per day instead of two.

But the bank's head, Stephen Hester, said it had lost money by not paying big bonuses to retain productive staff.


Swings and rounderbouts?

All this talk about bonuses is utter nonsense. Job satisfaction, that's what really counts!!

Or, at least that's what I was told many years ago.
