Enter the total commission amount ($) and the commission rate (%) into the Reverse Commission Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the sale value.

Reverse Commission Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Reverse Commission. 

S = C / (R/100)
  • Where S is the value of the sale ($)
  • C is the total commission amount ($) 
  • R is the commission rate (%) 

To calculate the value of a sale using reverse commission, divide the total commission amount by the commission rate.

How to Calculate Reverse Commission?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Reverse Commission.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total commission amount ($).
    • The total commission amount ($) is given as: 400.
  2. Next, determine the commission rate (%).
    • The commission rate (%) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Reverse Commission using the equation above: 

S = C / (R/100)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

S = 400 / (10/100) = 4000 ($)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total commission amount ($) = 500

commission rate (%) = 5

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

S = C / (R/100) = ?
