net profit before taxes is about 55% with two crews my first year
Curious...with this type of business, is your tax rate for the money made mowing, etc about 50%??? I do some occasional side work where I basically work as a contractor and the IRS hits me at about 50% I was wondering if this is about what you get hit with? So your net profit may be about 55% before taxes but after taxes is it more like 27% or so?
Exactly, most guys on here shoot for @30% or so.
About 40% after taxes.
Any business should be able to make it with a 30% margin. Then shoot for a 10-15% increase a year. That alows you to grow steady and not get to big to fast.
Thats awesome!!! For every dollar you bill, you profit .70 cents over and above all expenses???? I wish the margins were that good in Ohio. I gotta move!!! ALCGreg says he gets $60/hr to rake leaves in PA. I dont know where to relocate... My profit margins vary from the maint (mowing) to the outdoor kitchens ($40,000-$50,000 jobs) I will know how this year ended up soon, but I dont think I will avg 50-70%. Keep up the good work!!!
It's even better in my neck of the woods, I can normally squeeze out 475%
i make 500% profit. about 200,000 a year. Oh yeah, I'm also only 12 years old and I mow full time already, and I bought all my equipment, daddy didn't buy any of it.
