Forum Title: Commission and/or referral fees
So recently I'met a general contractor who specializes in high-end remodel work. Geographically, he works outside of the area I've historically worked in, but with the economy the way it is, we?ll travel a little further to keep working. Anyway, if we bid a roof for the general contractor, I presume they charge the property owners some kind of fee (a percentage). This GC prefers that we just contract directly with the property owners but did ask me to include a referral fee in the job of $500 for him. Generally I bid jobs by estimating my labor cost (including taxes and worker compensation insurance), estimate my material cost including sales tax, add in my miscellaneous expenses (i.e.: permits, dumpster fees, delivery costs, commission and/or referral fees) then sub-total it. Add 25% overhead and sub-total again. Then add 30% profit for my final price. I guess my question is, do you add overhead and profit to commission and/or referral fees?
