How to calculate your annual salary by hand?

To calculate the yearly salary from the hourly rate:

1. Multiply the working hours per week by the working weeks per year;
2. Multiply the previous result by the hourly wage; and
3. That's it. The last result is the calculated annual salary.

We can summarize the previous procedure and convert from annual to yearly salary with the following formula:

$\scriptsize \begin{gather*}\rm Annual\\[-5px]\rm salary \end{gather*} = \begin{gather*}\rm Working\\[-5px]\rm hours\\[-5px]\rm per\ week \end{gather*} \times \begin{gather*}\rm Working\\[-5px]\rm weeks\\[-5px]\rm per\ year \end{gather*} \times \begin{gather*}\rm Hourly\\[-5px]\rm wage \end{gather*}$

🔎 If you need to perform the opposite procedure and use the annual income to calculate the hourly rate, look at the FAQ section.

Let's look at some examples of how to calculate annual salaries with 40 weekly working hours and 52 annual working weeks:

• For a wage of $17/hr, the yearly salary is$35,360:
Annual salary = $17/hr × 40 hrs/week × 52 weeks/yr =$35,360/yr
• For a wage of $20 per hour, the annual salary is$41,600:
Annual salary = $20/hr × 40 hrs/week × 52 weeks/yr =$41,600/yr
• For a wage of $42/hour, the annual salary is$87,360:
Annual salary = $42/hr × 40 hrs/week × 52 weeks/yr =$87,360/yr
• For a wage of $70/hr, the yearly salary is$145,600:
Yearly salary = $70/hr × 40 hrs/week × 52 weeks/yr =$145,600/yr

To calculate the annual income and hourly wage after taxation, multiply them by one minus the tax rate expressed as a decimal:

$\scriptsize \begin{gather*}\rm Net\\[-5px]\rm hourly\\[-5px]\rm wage \end{gather*} = \begin{gather*}\rm Gross\\[-5px]\rm hourly\\[-5px]\rm wage \end{gather*} \times \left(1 - \begin{gather*}\rm Tax\\[-5px]\rm rate \end{gather*}\right)$
$\scriptsize \begin{gather*}\rm Net\\[-5px]\rm annual\\[-5px]\rm salary \end{gather*} = \begin{gather*}\rm Gross\\[-5px]\rm annual\\[-5px]\rm salary \end{gather*} \times \left(1 - \begin{gather*}\rm Tax\\[-5px]\rm rate \end{gather*}\right)$

💡 To convert a percentage into a decimal, divide it by 100. Learn more in our decimal to percent converter.

For example, applying a 12% tax rate to a wage of $20 per hour and its annual salary of$41,600/yr:

$\scriptsize \begin{split} \begin{gather*}\rm Net\\[-5px]\rm hourly\\[-5px]\rm wage \end{gather*} &= \mathrm{\20/hr \times (1 - 0.12)} \\&= \mathrm{\20/hr \times 0.88} \\ &= \mathrm{\17.6/hr} \end{split}$
$\scriptsize \begin{split} \begin{gather*}\rm Net\\[-5px]\rm annual\\[-5px]\rm salary \end{gather*} &= \mathrm{\41,600/yr \times (1 - 0.12)} \\&= \mathrm{\41,600/hr \times 0.88} \\ &= \mathrm{\36,608/hr} \end{split}$
