The Resource Rate Calculator is an industry calculator designed to simply and easily calculate resource rates such as head hour rates, annual salaries, overhead & profit markup and annual billable hours.
In fact the Resource Rate Calculator is four calculators in one:
1. Overhead cost and profit multiples - what factor must you multiply the direct salary cost by to cover the business overhead and profit
2. Annual Billable hours - how many billable hours are there in a year after annual leave, public holidays and sick-leave
3. Annual salary - based on the hourly rate what is the person's annual salary
4. Hourly rate – convert annual salary to hourly rate
Calculating head hour rates can be complex and confusing for marketers, procurement and even agencies themselves. There are so many variables such as:
1. Overhead cost and Profit Mark Ups
a. Mark Up or Margin
b. Direct versus In-Direct Salaries
c. Profit on Overhead and Salary Costs
2. Billable Hours Per Year
a. Annual Leave
b. Sick Leave
c. Public Holidays
d. Hours per week
e. Non-billable time

1. Multiple Currencies eg. Dollars, Euros, Pounds, Yuan, Yen, Rand, Peso, Won and more.
2. Billable Hours Per Year based on common local variables
