Does anyone know a work around to set a 4 weekly budget in the old style budget. There is nothing in the drop down box. So frustrating.

    just a user,

    I'm curious, are you looking for 13 4 week budget periods, or something else? I just use the monthly budget with no prorating.

    I get my pension every 4 weeks and just find it odd that a 4 week period
    hasn't been catered for.

    just a user,

    Do you get 13 pension payments each year?

    just a user,

    Ok, this is like someone being paid every two weeks, except you are being paid every four weeks. That means that you will receive payment each month except for one month where you will receive two payments. The way I would approach that is to set up a monthly budget for you pension payment, then on the month where you receive two payments, have the budget reflect the double payment for that single month. That would be easy to do with the Old Style Mixed Interval method. Just set up a budget for a monthly pension payment each month, then an additional budget entry for just the extra payment you receive on that specific month, You can make that extra payment start and stop for that single month while letting the normal budget continue month to month
