Another start up venture post.....apologies!
I have spent some time reading through the various posts on this site which has led me to sign up and post myself. I am currently reading Paul Powers how to book and it makes for very good reading however he runs his business as a sole trader, whereas I would like to run as a LTD company to separate personal finances assets etc from the company.
From the other threads I understand it's far better to price per job than to quote per hour, albeit in your mind your thinking approx 2-3 hours so you times that by your hourly rate to get a fixed price: in PP books he breaks down each quote with fuel, waste fees etc, is this normal or should you build this costs into the hourly rate?
For example ( numbers made up, not venturing into the hourly rate debate just yet....!)
3 hour job based on £1 an hour
£2 fuel costs
£1.5 waste fees etc
Total quote £7
or, is it better to just say yeah to mow your lawn, remove cuttings and waste it will be £7
Thanks in advance.
