Business Math: How to Calculate Pay Raise by Percentage

When it’s time for annual performance reviews, if you plan on including pay raises, you need to know the simple math behind calculating pay increases correctly. Raises can be based on any number of things including a worker’s piers, standard industry rates, length of time on the job, the amount of work to do, and even whether or not the boss likes the employee or not. There are few, if any, laws that govern how and when increases are granted, so it’s up to you to determine what you’re willing to give. has a free pay raise calculator that can help.

Calculating the Percentage

Generally, you will want to increase their pay by some percentage. The national average pay increase generally hovers between 3% to 3.5% depending on the year. The trend is to reward top performers with a higher than average pay raise and average workers with lower pay raises.

I have written about percentage before – in the post about calculating sales tax – now we’ll relate percentage to pay increases.

When your employee is ready for a pay increase, decide what percentage is fair and then do the following calculation:

(current rate)(percent increase)=(increase)

Step 1: Convert the percentage into decimal form

This is pretty basic, but you need to convert the percentage into a real number that you can use to multiply by the employee’s current pay rate. To do this, simply move the decimal two places to the left. For a 3% increase, you will use .03.

Step 2: Multiply the employee’s current pay rate by that decimal

If your employee makes $15/hour, then you have: 15x.03=.45. So your employee’s increase is 45 cents per hour. For an employee who makes a salary of $45,000/year, then you have: 45,000x.03=1,350. So your salaried employee’s pay increase is $1,350 per year.

Why You Have to Convert the Percent

This is just a little theory and not needed to do the problem.

The percent symbol is used to tell you something about the number it sits beside. Percent means ‘parts per hundred’. So if a % sign sits beside a 3, it really means 3 parts per 100. You don’t need to know this to calculate a pay increase but it might help you to understand why you need to convert the percent into decimal form to begin with. 3% tells us we need to multiply our pay rate by 3 pieces of a hundred.

Do you remember what the decimal places mean? The first decimal place is the tenths place and the second is the hundredths place. This is why when we convert our percent we have to move two places – we have to open up the hundredths place.

Automatic Pay Raise Calculations

The Human Resources Documents within the time tracking service calculates pay raise percentage as well as keeps record of changes. Record keeping is required by the FLSA for all sorts of things related to payroll.

      Sure Kathy. I can help you. Find 3% of $10.50 per hour by multiplying 10.5 by .03. That equals .315. So your new hourly wage will be $10.50 + .315 = $10.815

          If your hourly rate is (X) dollars, then you plug your raise percent amount (Y) into the following equation (use a calculator if you wish):

          (X)*(1+((Y)/100) )=(New Pay)

          Example: Current pay=$(10) per hour ; raise of (5%), the following equation illustrates this formula:

            Lindsay Sommers July 27, 2020

            First, you need to multiply your current rate by the decimal value of your raise percentage. 1843 x 0.03 = 55.29. Next, add your current wage to the previous value you calculated to get your new wage. So, $1843 + $55.29 = $1898.29.

            First you will multiply your current hourly wage by the decimal value of your raise (19.00 X 0.25= 4.75). You will then add the total to your hourly wage (4.75 + 19.00= 23.75). Your new hourly wage is $23.75.

            I assume you are referring to a 2.5% increase on a $14.40 hourly wage. If that’s not correct, please clarify so I can assist you further. First, you will convert 2.5% into decimal form, which is 0.025. You will then multiply the decimal increase by your current hourly wage, which is 0.025 X 14.40 = 0.36. Add 0.36 to 14.40, and you’ll get a total of $14.76/hour

        • Lindsay Sommers
          Lindsay Sommers September 5, 2019

          You would multiply the employee’s current hourly wage by the decimal value of 9.5%. $29.50 X 0.095(raise) = 2.8025. The employee will get an increase of $2.8025 per hour, which totals to $32.3025 per hour.

        • Lindsay Sommers

          Yes, that is correct. You will get a $0.372 raise, making the hourly rate $11.023

        • Lindsay Sommers
          Lindsay Sommers March 18, 2020

          First you need to multiply your current hourly rate by the decimal value or your raise percentage ($13.33 x 0.03= 0.3999). Next, you’ll add the total value to your current hourly rate ($13.33+$0.3999= $13.72/hr). To find your yearly salary, you need to multiply your new hourly rate by the amount of hours that you’re going to work in the year. Now, assuming that you’re full-time and work every day, you’re expected to work about 2,080 hours each year. 2080 X 13.72= ~$28,537 annual salary.

      • Lindsay Sommers
        Lindsay Sommers April 25, 2019

        You need to multiply your hourly wage or salary by 1 percent (0.01). For example, if you make $15/hr and get a 1% raise at the end of 6 months, you will multiply 15 X .01. That equals 0.15. Your pay after 6 months would be $15.15.

            Lindsay Sommers June 24, 2019

            You will want to multiply your hourly wage by the decimal value of your increase. In this case, you would multiply 14.21 X 0.02 = 0.2842. Add your current hourly wage to this number 14.21 + 0.2842 = 14.49. Your new wage would be $14.49.

        I’m unfortunately not familiar with SSI, but I can tell you that a 1.6% increase of 752 is 12.032. So, all together you’re looking at a change from 752 to 764.032.

    • June 15, 2016

      Hi Johnny,

      We can just plug in what we know to the formula and solve. Rate(%) = increase

      R(.035) = .48

      Now divide both sides by .035 to get R = .48/.035

      R = 13.71

      Hi Kay,

      This problem is a little different. Writing out the problem in words should help it make sense. 1.5% of your old salary was your raise last year so we are going to add that to your old salary to get your new salary.

      (old salary) + 1.5%(old salary) = new salary

      Let’s call the old salary x since we don’t know that value. And we’ll write 1.5% as a decimal to get:

      x + .015x = 2018.30

      Combine terms:

      1.015x = 2018.30

      Solve for x:

      x = 2018.30/1.015

      x = 1988.47

      Last year’s salary was $1988.47

    I have a contract that states that I my increase of CPI cannot be more that 3.5%. Last years CPI .7 and this years CPI is 2.1. My fee last year was $1.12. So the most I can increase would be $1.12 * .035 = .0392 = .39 cents?

    So last years fee was $1.12 and I would increase by the maximum of .39 = 1.51?

        Hi there. Since you’re making $13.00 an hour and you’re getting a raise of $0.52, you will add your raise to current hourly rat, which totals to $13.52/hour.

    • Peggy Emch
      Peggy Emch April 13, 2017

      It’s not this simple. You need to use the compound interest formula to get an accurate number. For example, if you make 20,000 per year, your first raise will be $200. The next year your raise will be $202 and the next it will be 204.02 and so on.

He’ll make 15.53 a hour the 1st 3months then goes to 17 an hour. They give a 2%raise based on what you have made in a certain time frame. How would I calculate that? Lets just say he’ll make 12000 in this time frame. How would this translate into an hourly increase?

      Word the problem as follows: What percent of 16 is 2.
      Write that out in math: x*16=2 –> x=16/2 –> x=.125
      So 12% was your increase.

        Hi. Thanks for helping people out. This reply does not work for me though as I dont the math you used and the symbols used such as x*. If you could include the reverse method in this article: how to calculate a pay raise increase not just by percentage but by the dollar/currency increment amount and how to word the problem and also explain it for us that are not good with math/math symbols that would really help a lot of people. For instance. I pay someone 14 per hour and if I want to pay them 19 per hour, I don’t know how to go about figuring the percentage out from this angle rather than what is explained in the article which only talks about things if we already know the perentage. The calculator only works based on percentage but we often need to know the other way around. Thanks much : )

      You would multiply your annual salary by the decimal value of 2% (0.02). 35,000 x 0.02 = 700. This is a $700 increase of your annual salary. 35,000 + 700 = 35,700 annually.

      Hi Silvia. Assuming you work the expected 2080 hours a year, and with $23.95/hour, you make about $49,816 ($23.95 x 2080 hours= 49,816) without a tax decrease. Now, all you have to do is add your annual income to your increase. $5,000 + $49,816= $54,816 a year without a tax decrease.

      If that is the case, you will multiply the decimal value of 4% by 31.95. 0.04(raise) X 31.95(current hourly pay) = 1.278 Increase. Add the increase to your current wage and you will get 32.228 per hour

    • Lindsay Sommers
      Lindsay Sommers October 3, 2019

      If you spread out 4.5% over 5 months, you will get about a 0.5% raise every month for 9 months. For example, let’s say you’re getting paid $10 an hour and you want to know how much you’ll be making next month with your 0.5% raise. You will multiply $10 by 0.005 (the decimal value of 0.5%), and you get a total of 0.05. This means next month you will get paid $10.05.

    Hourly rates: $28, $22, $22, $18, $20, $12, $12, $12, $15, $15, $12

      Lindsay Sommers December 16, 2019

      First off, the hourly wage for an employee who earns $80,000 a year is ~$38.46 per hour. The average of the hourly rates you provided are calculated by adding all of the numbers together and dividing the total by the amount of digits you provided. 28+22+22+18+20+12+12+12+15+15+12= 188. 188/11= 17.09. The average hourly rate is $17.09.

      Lindsay Sommers April 17, 2020

      First, you need to multiply your currently hourly rate by the decimal value of the percentage ($7.20 X 0.25= 1.8). Then, add the value to your hourly wage ($7.20 + 1.8= $9.00). Your new hourly wage is $9.00 an hour.

      First, you’ll need to multiply your current hourly wage by the decimal value of your raise ($8.00 X 0.031= 0.248). Next, you’ll subtract the new decimal value from your current hourly wage ($8.00 – 0.248= 7.752). Your previous hourly wage was $7.752/hour
