Formulas for Calculating Hourly Rate

To accurately calculate your hourly rate, you will need to know the number of hours you work per day, week and month.

Here’s the breakdown on how to convert your annual salary into monthly, weekly, daily and hourly pay, using a $40.000 annual salary.

Hourly wage:

  • Number of working hours per week: 40
  • Number of working weeks per year: 52
  • Annual salary: $40.000

Assuming you didn’t take any significant PTO or UTO, the formula would consist of multiplying the number of working hours per week and the number of working weeks per year so:

40 x 52 = 2080

After establishing the number of working hours per year (2080), we can find your hourly rate by dividing your annual salary with the number of working hours:

$40.000 / 2080 = $19.23 per hour


Monthly Equivalent

To calculate your monthly wage, you would simply divide your annual salary by 12:

$40.000 / 12 months = $3,333.33 per month

Weekly Equivalent

Assuming you work a full 52-week work year, the weekly equivalent is calculated as:

$40,000 ÷ 52 weeks = $769.23 per week

Daily Equivalent:

Assuming a 5-day workweek (260 working days in a year), the daily equivalent is calculated as:

$40,000 ÷ 260 days = $153.85 per day

Converting an annual salary into equivalent figures for a month, week and day can be helpful for budgeting and understanding your earnings on different time scales. Additionally, you will need to adjust these numbers if there were significant time-offs that would reduce the number of working hours/days/weeks.

Salary to Hourly Calculator F&Q

How do I calculate hourly salary?

To calculate your hourly salary or wage from an annual salary, you can follow these steps:

Determine the total hours you work annually: If you work full-time (40 hours per week), you can calculate this as:

Total hours worked annually = weekly work hours × number of weeks in a year. Assuming a standard 40-hour work week and 52 weeks in a year, you have:

Total hours worked annually = 40 hours/week × 52 weeks/year = 2,080 hours/year.

Calculate your hourly wage: Once you know the total hours worked in a year, you can calculate your hourly wage by dividing your annual salary by the total hours:

Hourly wage = annual salary / total hours worked annually.

For example, if your annual salary is $50,000:

Hourly Wage = $50,000 / 2,080 hours/year ≈ $24.04 per hour.
