How to issue a bonus order for employees?

Bonuses are pleasant event for every employee. It is important for the manager to correctly formalize the legal aspects of the award. Otherwise, it can lead to unpleasant conversations with the tax authorities.


What are premiums and their types?


A bonus is an additional type of earnings, independent of wages. Workers can receive it depending on their goals. This can be a reward, an additional incentive, or a reward for the work done. There are one-time, reusable and permanent awards. With disposables, everything is more or less clear, but reusable ones may differ. They can be paid depending on the time (for example, on the 5th day of each month or after a certain period of time, for example, every 30 days) or for the performance of a certain amount of work.


Awards can be individual or collective. One employee can receive a collective award and together with it he can receive an individual award. The bonus can be either dependent on the result of labor, or not related to it. If the award is considered as an incentive independent of the result of labor, the following reasons can be distinguished:


✅ Experience

✅ Compensation payments


✅ Loyalty program from the company


✅ Incentive bonus


✅ Execution of personal errands


Awards, especially in a private enterprise, can be awarded for a variety of merit. There is a clear system of reasons for receiving such remuneration at state-owned enterprises.
