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 ($) 

To calculate the base rent, subtract the percent of sales rent from the total 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 ($)
