Enter the current basis points and the original basis points into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Basis Point Increase. 

Basis Point Increase Formula



  • BPI is the Basis Point Increase (basis points)
  • CBP is the current basis points
  • OBP is the original basis points

To calculate Basis Point Increase, subtract the original basis points from the current basis points.

How to Calculate Basis Point Increase?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Basis Point Increase.

  1. First, determine the current basis points. 
  2. Next, determine the original basis points. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = BPI = CBP – OBP.
  4. Finally, calculate the Basis Point Increase.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

current basis points = 4.25

original basis points = 3.25
