Industry Bill Rates?

By michaelh ·
I was curious what the industry bill rate standards are for IT Consulting, programming, db designs etc. Does anyone know of any resources I can use as a template?

There are no standards. Rates will vary by location, experience/skills, and what the market will bear.

As the first answer mentioned, all depends.

If you have your own company, profit, overhead, salaries, equipment, advertising, taxes, insurance, so on & so forth all goes into bill rates. So, that $100.00 per hour rate had better cover those costsAND include a profit.

If your trying to figure out if you could profitably go into business for yourself, back into the equation by asking yourself, what would "you" pay? , then factor in all the expense of running a business and see if you could compete and make a profit.

Again, as the first answer said [which you rejected] it depends. There is no industry standard billing rates. Microsoft can charge $175.00 per hour for tech support, where your own buiness [which your the sole worker]may charge only $50.00. The computer programmer doing free lance programming in C+++ might ask for $100.00 per hour [of which he sees that $100.00 per hour all going into his pocket because he's not in business for himself]. Again, there is no "industry standard" because the IT Industry encompasses a multitude of disiplines, each of which both large business and the small one man company compete for the available $$. Large business may actually contract with a small one 4 or 10 man company because what the consumer will pay is for their hourly rate based upon their overhead, not the small business they contract with to actually do the work.
