This is a very interesting topic – I am currently going out on my own as a contractor in the southern suburbs of Sydney. After discussing this with others in the industry, I’m intending to charge $50 an hour, which I think is a reasonable rate for a qualified and experienced bookkeeper. The going rate as an employee is around $30 – $35, so by the time you add on Super, holidays & the other costs involved I think $50 is about right. I know that in the Eastern suburbs its more like $70.

Mind you, I don’t have any clients yet – any takers?!!
