What percent of sales should labor be?


Answer by  turkinforalivin (1279)

That number can vary greatly based on the type of business, but as a general rule labor should be between 30-40% of your sales.

It depends entirely on what it is you are buying. If you are purchasing something like gravel where very little labor is used to produce the item, labor costs will make up a small percentage of the cost. But if you are looking at an item like a painting by a famous artist, the labor will be the majority ofcosts.
