We’ve put together a bunch of pricing guides to help you out.
Each guide lists the budget, average and premium hourly (or square metre) rates and what should be included for this cost.
Just like in retail, sometimes you pay less and sometimes you pay more. How a service is priced depends on the individual contractor, but our pricing guides provide a handy benchmark.
All our pricing information comes from real quotes submitted through our site.
We don’t pretend to be experts on the pricing of every industry, we’re simply feeding back the prices are our site and hoping that this information will be of some use to those who have no idea where to start!
We are always trying to improve our pricing information so if you’re a business, we welcome any comments/feedback from businesses about pricing your particular industry. After all you are the experts, so we will happily take anything you have to say on board.
I recently heard from a bookkeeper who thought that our advertised hourly bookkeeping rates were too low. She explained to me all the different qualifications required and the risks involved with paying the budget rate (i.e. these businesses frequently outsource the work to cheaper overseas third parties who are not familiar with Australian legislation). I’ve taken all her comments on board and will be incorporating them when I refresh all of our pricing guides next month.
