Yes they are – any/all income is included when your trustee assess wheyher or not you are required to make a surplus income payment.

I’m not sure I understand the second half of your question – there is no mimimum or maximum amount that you will be required to pay in order to qualify for an automatic discharge.

An automatic discharge is available to any first time bankrupt that completes all of their required duties properly – your trustee will lay those out in detail for you before you file for bankruptcy.
