The Markup Calculator (requires Windows operating system) will calculate the correct markup for your residential or commercial construction business, whether you are a general or a specialty contractor.
Using the same principles laid out in the book Markup & Profit Revisited, you can quickly and easily determine the correct markup to ensure you cover your overhead, and make a reasonable profit on the jobs you do.
If you prefer charging time by the hour, you can also calculate the hourly rate you need to cover your labor and overhead expenses, and provide a profit. This program will calculate one or two different hourly rates, for as many employees as you have. Whether you work alone or have fifty employees, this program will help you make sure you charge enough.
