    what percentage should be profit
    what bottom line profit percentage should be profit in a week or for a year for a company only running a crew?

    The owner is absolutely doing nothing at the job sites

    what should be the pure profit?

    minus hourly rate
    minus matching employer funds
    minus workers comp
    minus liab insur
    minus % of maintenance
    minus % of office supplies
    minus gas
    minus what other expenses


    also could any body else answer for just a solo guy doing all the work what is the % of pure profit for a company. I want to compare to my last few years without a crew.

    We target 10% minimum profit on all work, (since we only have one employee trying to get him into shape to hire another) When my husband worked solo, he made as much as 50% profit on most work he did.
    We are targeting an overall 20% profit margin with a crew.

    most agree that a minimum of 15% net is required to stay in business.
