It can make a simulation, to calculate the increase or decrease expected and validate its request to the tax administration.
If his income changes (payment of an exceptional bonus, for example), the levy will adapt every month to the income received, since it is a percentage. If the income decreases, the amount of the levy will decrease in the same proportion. Conversely, if it increases, the amount of the levy will increase in the same proportion. The amount of the debit will vary automatically in the course of the year depending on the evolution of income.
