How to Calculate Net Percent


The term "net" refers to the amount of money left over after all deductions have been made. For a business, these deductions could include such things as overhead costs, interest rates and taxes. Net percent is calculated by expressing the net as a percentage of gross, or the overall total before deductions have been made. A net percent can be useful to an individual or company that wants a clear depiction of its finances.

Things You'll Need

  • Calculator
  • Write down your gross figure. This number refers to the overall total before any deductions have been made.

  • Subtract from your gross figure all of your deductions. This number is your net figure. Write this figure down.

  • Divide your net figure by your gross figure. The result will be less than zero.

  • Multiply the figure you obtained in Step 3 by 100. This is your net percent.
