Enter the total rent ($) and the percent of sales rent ($) into the calculator to determine the Base Rent. 

Base Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Base Rent. 

Rbase = TR – POSR

  • Where Rbase is the Base Rent ($)
  • TR is the total rent ($) 
  • POSR is the percent of sales rent ($) 

How to Calculate Base Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Base Rent.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total rent ($). In this example, the total rent ($) is given as 7000.
  2. Next, determine the percent of sales rent ($). For this problem, the percent of sales rent ($) is given as 5000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Base Rent using the equation above: 

Rbase = TR – POSR

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Rbase = 7000 – 5000 = 2000 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total rent ($) = 8000

percent of sales rent ($) = 3000

Entering these values and solving gives:

Rbase = 8000 – 3000 = 5000 ($)
