Enter the total fringe benefits (\$) and the total salary (\$) into the Fringe Benefit Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Fringe Benefit Rate.

## Fringe Benefit Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Fringe Benefit Rate.

FBR = FB / S * 100

• Where FBR is the Fringe Benefit Rate (%)
• FB is the total fringe benefits (\$)
• S is the total salary (\$)

## How to Calculate Fringe Benefit Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Fringe Benefit Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total fringe benefits (\$).
• The total fringe benefits (\$) is given as: 1,000.
2. Next, determine the total salary (\$).
• The total salary (\$) is provided as: 35,000.
3. Finally, calculate the Fringe Benefit Rate using the equation above:

FBR = FB / S * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

FBR = 1,000 / 35,000 * 100 = 2.85 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total fringe benefits (\$) = 2,000

total salary (\$) = 60,000
