    I'm not sure I understand why new people always ask this question....

    Figure ALL of your expenses, figure what you need to charge to cover that and a profit, and there you have it. Nobody has the same CODB, so you'll have to figure your charge like any other business.

    What your market will allow!

    Indirect overhead + Direct overhead + labor with burden + profit margin = price of service to customer.
    Just plug in you numbers. Simple:)
