    Wondering if everyone is willing to share what they are spending on Shop/Office Expense. I'm looking for a percentage of yearly revenue. To keep a level playing field, lets use the following formula...

    (yearly rent expense + property taxes) / annual revenue

    I'm only interested in those that lease your facilities.

    I'll start...I'm currently at 1.5% However, I'm busting at the seems and have a feeling that ratio is going up. I'm trying to justify the extra expense, though, thus the reason for this thread.
