This is good for a way to calculate your target number in order to reach the profit goal you have figured.
But, it doesn’t calculate how much you should charge and sticking to only that number may leave you undercharging at times. You need to be able to sell your item for market rate no matter what your target number is. Sometimes the market price could be way more than your target rate. I suggest using your number more for a guideline than a rule.

One thing it will do is let you know when you aren’t charging enough and this is good. At least you know what you have to charge to meet your goal and whether or not you have to sacrifice to get the job or not, or make the sale if your pricing/making products to sale.
