True Cost of Running a Business - Rhode Island
November 14, 2019

Presented by PHCC of Rhode Island 
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm
This session is a must attend for anyone who has not done the math to determine their own correct selling price, but it also aimed at business owners and key personnel who are responsible for competing against companies that are undercharging for their services.

If you are charging customers less than your costs to do the job, it’s just a matter of time before your cash flow comes to an end.

We will help you determine your proper selling price that covers ALL your costs to provide a service, plus a profit based on the % you choose.

In this seminar, you will learn how to:

            Calculate all the pieces that go into employee costs

            Determine field productivity & the billable hours available to the company

            Determine company overhead expenses

            Find your company’s breakeven rate

            Calculate your profit with a discussion on mark-up vs. margin methods

            Arrive at a solid billable hour price that is based on real numbers – not guesses.

Use the Tools Available to You as a PHCC Member!
The seminar will include a review of the PHCC Educational Foundation’s Overhead & Profit Calculator, a software tool designed to make the process of finding a proper selling price easy for p-h-c contractors.
All PHCC members receive a free copy of the software!
