Ty Korrigan Posted June 27, 2005 Author Share Posted June 27, 2005 Hello...I pay myself 8euros per hour which is around 12euros including the social charges. If I bought a new Renault van for 20k a highsided trailer 3k to carry the mowers and cart away materials, 3 in all 10k and thats bloody cheap too! I have an investment figure of 35k.I must recupurate the cost of this in order to buy new replacements after 10years.As my effective working season is 30 weeks I calculate 30weeks x 10 years divided by 35k= 117 which if then divided by the client hours I work on average say 30 gives me a figure of 4euros in order to recuperate the investment.Fuel,accountant,repairs,publicity on prime time.... and also growth of business in terms of machinery and size need a profit margin.I believe that if you not only can do the job well but look smart with good clean machinery then clients will pay a little more for the peace of mind/proffessional image.What do you lot think...?
