How to calculate your annual salary

To calculate your annual salary, take your hourly wage and multiply it by the number of paid hours you work per week and then by the number of paid weeks you work per year.

Formula for calculating annual salary

Annual salary = hourly wage × hours per week × weeks per year

For guidance, a standard working week for a full-time employee is around 40 hours. Note that if you take two weeks of unpaid leave per year, your number of weeks will be 50, rather than 52.

Example calculation

Let's go through an example. If you make $15 per hour and are paid for working 40 hours per week for 52 weeks per year, your annual salary (pre-tax) will be 15 × 40 × 52 = $31,200.

Using this formula, we can calculate the following annual incomes from basic hourly pay. It's important to remember that these figures are pre-tax and deductions.
