What is job costing?
Job costing is the process of tracking and calculating the costs connected with a project. By using project costing and tracking software, you can keep track of job costs including labour costs, material costs and overhead costs to help you estimate, budget and plan for future projects.
Calculate labour costs
Labour costs relate to the employees who will be working on a project including third parties and subcontractors. Calculate the employees’ rate and multiply that by the hours you’ve estimated using our hourly rate calculator to determine estimated labour costs.
Calculate material costs
Every job requires parts, tools and other physical materials. Material prices are often fixed, or you may choose to add a margin to cover related costs including storage or delivery fees, so factor this into your project cost estimation.
Calculate overhead costs
Overhead costs are the general costs required to run your business. These operating costs could include rent, insurance, accounting, billing, and office equipment that are factored into the job costing.
