What’s the right price?: Rate structures for contractors and consultants
What rate do I charge clients? That’s the most frequently asked question I get from contractors just starting out.
When am I a contractor vs a consultant? How do I charge the right rate for my services? Should I have multiple rates for different services? What about subcontracts? What about expenses and GST? With the changing market, setting a rate structure is not a simple task. These are all questions asked on a regular basis.
Discuss these and related issues at the April 4th meeting of the Contractors and Independent Consultants STC SIG. If you want to submit a question beforehand for discussion at the meeting, email rabailie -at- intentionaldesign -dot- ca.
