Hi there – been musing how to answer this.
I have seen a number of different pricing models like an employee cost is 30% of the services invoice – e.g. if it costs you $30 to deliver a service with your employee, then you charge the client $100 – that is a 70/30 split with 70 going to the employer. Then some people who hire out contractors take less margin, and it is more like a 40/60 split with 40 going to the employer.
This does not take account however of what is the market rate for the services you are offering – I would start there, and then work back – if you are employing people then there is clearly more cost in this, if you are contracting less – and then if you are just giving them access to use a room, then in this latter case it really depends on how much income they earn and what is a reasonable rate to rent the room – you don’t want to lose money on it, but you also don’t want to charge so much that the tenant can’t make any money.
