Hi all,

This is what I was trying to achieve, just for clarity.

All my direct debits come out of Moneywell on the 1st of the month. I
am paid on the first on the month. I want to fill my buckets in one go
at that time. From what I am reading I need to set the allocate income
to the 2nd half of the month and all will be well. Looking forward to
next month :-)

Best wishes
