Base Salary per Year

Definition

What is the base salary per year?

The term “base salary per year” or “base pay” refers to the predetermined amount of money that a person would expect to receive every year at their workplace. This figure does not contain any commissions, insurance, salaries, or other types of extra pay. Employees are usually charged bi-weekly over the year, with a total of 26 paychecks.

Base salary per year does not incorporate all types of compensation; for example, shift differential pay, on-call pay, pay for special duties, and incentive-based pay are usually not included. In general, an employee’s base salary is the least amount he may expect to receive during a given pay period, minus any extra financial or substantive benefits that can lift the overall pay above this sum.

How to calculate the base salary per year?

Salaried employees are paid a fraction of their annual base salary. To measure the sum, divide their annual basic salary by the number of pay periods in a year at that company. Here is a step-by-step guide to compute the base salary per year:

Step 1: Determine whether or not you are a salaried employee. When calculating your base salary, it is helpful to consider your job status. You can also get confirmation from the employer’s payroll department.

Step 2: Make use of the details on your pay stub. Examine your pay stub for information on your gross (total) pay. Pay stubs detail various deductions such as federal, state, and local taxes, as well as social security and Medicare.

Step 3: Consider a pay schedule. Understand how much you are paid. Employees are typically paid biweekly, but some are paid weekly, monthly, or semi-monthly.

Step 4: Compute your yearly salary. You should measure your salary once you have a solid understanding of how to find details about it. Locate your net gross earnings until deductions on your pay stub. Now multiply that statistic by the number of paychecks you get per year.
