## Salary Inflation Calculator (complete tool guide)

Have you ever wondered how you can calculate salary inflation; this matter is fundamental because you will pay your employees or you will pay as an employee.

We have developed a tool that can help you with this matter, so let's get straight to the statement and see the formula for the salary inflation calculator tool, and then we will tell you some examples you have to know about.

**Let’s begin and get to the salary inflation calculator:**

## Salary inflation calculator: how to work with?

First, we must tell you about the fields you must fill for the salary inflation calculator tool to work correctly.

**So, let’s begin:**

### · Started year

This tool section is dedicated to the date you started working, and you have to ensure that the year is correct, mainly because the tool will fill in the inflation rate automatically for the United States.

### · Last year

This section will request the last year you received a salary, and just like the last one, because it is related to the inflation rate, you have to be accurate about the year you stopped working with someone.

### · Started salary

This section will ask you to fill in the first salary you have received in your job; this section and the next one are the most important, so make sure you enter the numbers correctly.

The amount in this field is based on US dollars.

### · Last salary

In this section, you must enter the last salary you have received from your job and ensure the number you put in is accurate to the last bit of dollars or even cents if needed.

Remember that you will adjust this section until you get the needed amount.

### · Inflation base

This section has two choices that you can select from: the United States (US) and the next one is the other, which is for the rest of the nations.

This section is directly connected to the next section you fill in; let's see how.

### · Inflation rate

This section will ask you to put in the inflation rate of the years you have set. If you have chosen the United States, it will fill in automatically; however, if you decided on others in the previous section, you have to fill this section manually.

Now let’s see an example with the salary inflation calculator formula.

Imagine that you received your first salary, $1000, in 2021. The last paycheck you received should be calculated based on the inflation rate, which would be in percentages, considering the inflation rate of 3%.

Therefore, the last salary should be $1030; in this scenario, the matching wage is this.

**Now let’s see the formula behind this fact:**

· **X = (Y * N) ± Y**

In where:

**X = last salary****Y = started salary****N = inflation rate**

**Fact: in the formula, if the inflation rate is above zero, you have to use the plus (gathering), and if it is below zero, you have to choose the minus (subtract).**

Considering the example above, we would have:

· **X = ($1000 * 3/100) + $1000**

**X = $1030**

**There are two sections that we haven’t talked about:**

### · Nominal Increase

This section will show you the last salary that you would receive.

### · Adjusted Salary

This is the important one; you can see a parenthesis at the end of the number in this field; the percentage indicates if you are overpaying or underpaying.

This fact is declared by the plus or the minus sign beside the number.

This field shows the starting salary or at least what it should have been.

**This tool can significantly make your job easier and consider it like a game; and let's see how it works:**

- After filling in all the sections, you must put a random number in the last salary section.
- Then you should observe the adjusted salary percentage and change the last salary until the portion in front of the number is precisely zero.
- In this case, this number is the accurate price you must pay or get paid when considering the inflation rate.

Keep in mind that there is no need to get scared of the conditions and formulas; if you can use the tool with our instructions, you can easily calculate the salary inflation.

In other words, the tool does it all, and there is no need for you to do anything.

Using this tool, you will know what salary you should pay or get paid in a certain period with the inflation rate.

And not to mention that the tool that we have developed is entirely free, and you don't even need to sign in to use this tool; in other words, your personal information will not be asked for, and you can use this tool as much as you like without no limits.

Good luck.
