Tell them now. I went through something similar except I did not give a number when negotiations first started. I said let's see where this goes and talk salary later. When we finally got to salary at the end of the process weeks later it was brought up very quickly and I did not really have an adequate chance to respond. Later that day I went back and sent a note letting the recruiter know that I would not move for the number they gave and that this was my number which was significantly different. I did not get my number but they came within 5k after some back and forth. Let them know before they put one in writing and say you never expressed it to them.

Negotiation tips are welcomed

Look up anchoring.

Similar issue. It's been almost half a year between interview rounds and need to figure out a way to get a higher offer. Accidentally understated original number as well.

@EY1- I did give a number but low since I wasn’t ready. Is it acceptable to give new number b/w verbal and final offer or better to wait?

Yes. U have nothing to loses. Tell them what u want.

(I doubt they’ll even counter for the full amount if I tell them) Thanks for the input.

She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
