- Head to Transfers > Click On Transfer Budget Remaning > Drag the slider > Confirm
- Go to Club Vision – Locate Budget Adjustments – Drag the Slider to the left or right depending on if you got funds available – Click Confirm.
- You can also alter the wages and transfer budget from an ‘action news item’ for example when making a transfer bid. See Budget Adjustment in the top right corner.
- Or go to the summary of Finances and locate adjust budgets to the right. From here you can also make budget requests.
* Note! You can’t edit the remaining transfer budget until the club’s season expectations are agreed upon.

It means that there might be more money available to allocate (primarily by reducing the wage budget), which in turn increases the remaining transfer budget. In some circumstances, adjusting and maximizing the transfer budget might affect the remaining wage budget negatively. The negative wage budget may force you to sell one or more players, or reduce your wage bill by renegotiating contracts, to be able to keep a positive balance. Learn how to make budget adjustments below.
