incremental budget

incremental budget
A budget prepared using a previous period's budget or actual performance as a basis, with incremental amounts added for the new budget period. This approach to budget preparation is not recommended as it often fails to take into account the changed operating conditions for the new budget period, which will not necessarily replicate those for the previous period.
