Explanation - Transitional phasing works by comparing the new "normal" bill (notional charge) with the previous year's bill. Above and below the previous year's bill there is a "normal" band, the boundaries of which are set percentages (adjusted for inflation). If the new bill falls within the "normal" band then that will be the interim (transitional) bill. If the new bill falls outside the "normal" band then the appropriate "normal" band boundary will be the interim (transitional) bill - protecting business from sudden swings. Final adjustment (supplement or relief) may apply to convert the interim (transitional) bill to an actual bill.

Caveat: At this stage we cannot know the business multiplier values for future years so this phasing projection assumes that they stay the same in the subsequent years - past experience suggests that they will creep up slightly so that by 2009-10 the "normal" bill (notional charge) could be about 10% optimistic. NB You can modify the inflation rates as much as you like !
