# Examples of phasing

You specify a phasing weight for up to twelve periods in the year. A phasing factor is calculated for each phasing weight. The calculation is:

`Phasing factor=Phasing Weight/Total of all phasing weights for the year`

To determine the amount to be distributed in each period, the phasing factor is multiplied by the total amount to be distributed.

In these examples, a cost of $58,000 is distributed.

## Phasing by days per month

In this example the phasing weight for each period is the number of days in the month. There are 365 phasing weights (days) in the year.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

Weight | 31 | 28 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30 | 31 |

For each period, the weight is divided by 365 to determine the phasing factor.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

Factor | 0.085 | 0.077 | 0.085 | 0.082 | 0.085 | 0.082 | 0.085 | 0.085 | 0.082 | 0.085 | 0.082 | 0.085 |

Each phasing factor is multiplied by $58,000 to determine the amount to be allocated in each period.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

$ | 4930 | 4466 | 4930 | 4756 | 4930 | 4756 | 4930 | 4930 | 4756 | 4930 | 4756 | 4930 |

## Phasing over 9 months

In this example, $58,000 is allocated over 9 months of the year. 365 days divided by 9 gives a notional 40 or 41 days per month.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

Weight | 41 | 40 | 41 | 40 | 41 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 41 | 40 | 41 | 40 |

## Even

This example spreads values evenly across periods.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | |
