Whether you’re new to the world of contracting, or you’ve been freelance for years, deciding what to charge per hour as a contractor can be difficult. You need to be sure you’re not underselling yourself and your skills, but also don’t want to overcharge and lose out on potential assignments.

The best way to combat this is to start with how much your desired annual salary would be and work out the hourly assignment rate from there. This may sound complicated but our handy calculator below can do the work and sums for you.
