Hourly Rate

Posted by Helen Hardcastle on Thursday, January 23, 2014 Under: General Blog
I saw an interesting discussion recently on a forum for CAD freelancers regarding charges. Most freelancers charge an hourly rate and keep detailed records of the time they spend on each project. The discussion centred around exactly what you should charge for, for example, what about the time you spend on the phone or exchanging emails to establish an accurate brief: what about time spent making changes to drawings after they are completed; what about admin time spent providing and chasing invoices etc? All of these things take time, but most of us only charge for the time spent actually doing a drawing. Interesting question. Does anyone have any views they would like to share?
