The employee component allows you to enter salaries for your staff and automatically calculate national insurance and pension benefits. You can use one employee component to model multiple employees on the same salary grade or use one component per person you employ.


  • Number of employees Choose the number of employees you have at this salary grade
  • Cost per employee Enter the annual salary, this amount will automatically be spread monthly on your reports. This will be multiplied by the amount of employees you choose from the option above. 
  • Employee pension contribution Add an additional percentage on top of the salary to represent the pension employer pension contribution.
  • Apply national insurance Tick this if you want Brixx to automatically calculate the NI rate for you. The NI rate can be found in the financial settings of your plan and is set at a global level for all employee components with this option ticked.

Planning salary raises

You can increase a salary by pressing 'Show as table' underneath the cost per employee input. This will show a table allowing you to change the salary at a certain point in time.

Keep in mind that if you are using one component to model multiple employees, it will raise all of the employee salaries at the same time. If you want to raise salaries at different times you will need to use separate employee components to achieve this.
