Are you leaving money on the table by applying inaccurate overhead and profit to your job costs? Don’t do it. 

It doesn’t make any difference where the expense comes from; your markup should be applied evenly, across the board to all expenses. Contractors that do, consistently make more money than those that try to adjust their markup based on some pre-conceived notion that it is not fair to charge more for labor or that you are making too much money for labor on a job.

This workshop will discuss:

  • Financial Benchmarks and performance
  • Calculating markup and margins
  • Calculating your overhead rate
  • A practice problem on markup
  • Forecasting and Budgeting
  • Purchasing decisions using margins
  • Bidding and Proposal Strategy
