Minimum Bottom Line Profit Should Average 9.4%!
For Trades & Subcontractors, at Least 11%
After Income Taxes Are Paid!

As an owner of a construction company, your profits should average 9.4 percent per year after taxes. This profit is net of your personal salary of $100,000 to $140,000 per year. Therefore, if you are contracting around $1.5 million per year, you should be generating no less than $180,000 per year in take home compensation for your efforts. If not, you are not in the upper half of performance within this industry.
