    Trying to work out expenses on a weekly basis to run a WC business.

    So far

    Fuel
    PLI
    Van insurance
    Water
    Van Tax
    Bank fees.

    I don't mean like buy a pole. It last a 3 years. Then work out what it costs per week. Just like core expenses really?

    What are the obv ones please.

    Rubbers, scraper blades, cleaning chemicals.

    I'm planning on upping my price by a few dollars for all consumables used to clean my customers windows - soon as I spreadsheet it all up and figure it out.

    The tools themselves (handles, channels, poles etc,,.) I won't try to spread across customers because (a) they don't need to be replaced and (b) I'll just keep buying **** I don't need because I'm a stupid consumer, and customers shouldn't "foot" the bill on what are really just toys I don't need to buy at all.

    But rubbers, blades, chemicals, and travel costs are depleted each job, so it's only fair the customers split the bill between em. It'll only come to $5/£2 extra per customer, but I do a good job so shouldn't be paying for that stuff out my own money.

    Oh, freight for online orders too.

    A % of council tax if your running it from home and use 1 room as an office, plus I think you can claim for food whilst your working within reason I don't do it personally as I don't stop for lunch as done by 3 anyway

    What about filters mate? Surely you know their life expectancy on your system so should be able to calculate.

    Also parking for any of those in town jobs on a meter?
