Can anyone tell me the typical hourly & daily rates for a business consultant in Paris?
As I have a friend who may about to be doing some self-employed work in Paris but is not familiar with the going rates in Paris & France in general.
How do the rates compare wih London & the UK which my friend is more familiar with?
Also, my friend as already registered as an Auto-Entrepreneur (AE) in France.
Any guidance would be very helpful. Thanks in advance for any responses.
It imagine must depend on the field of expertise.
I work for a large Construction, Energies & Facilities Management company as a Works Project Manager (Maitre d’oeuvre) also as a BIM Manager (Building information modeling) The rate I have to quote for consulting / commissioning etc is +/- 800-900€ a day. I also buy in for specialist projects expert consultants at 1 350€ per day.
If you really want to know a ball park figure send out a false tender to the competition ask them to quote. The spectrum, small start-up, small to large & very large companies.
As for Auto-Entrepreneur status, I think the limit one can earn is very limited before changing the status of the business.
Surely a business consultant should know this sort of thing?
Is this, perhaps, a first-step by your friend, into the Business Consultancy world ?
It very much depends upon the location, type and level of consultancy.
It is rather more complex than the graded levels for teaching.
Graded levels for teaching? Not how it works here.
A self-employed business consultant should know what he or she charges, surely? I thought they charged what they thought they could get away with, rather like the brokers I used to do business with in India, and rather like me back in Europe negotiating my bonus
Thanks to Warren and others for your very helpful responses. Much appreciated.
My friend has plenty of consultancy experience outside of France.
But was concerned they woud be under-selling themselves in Paris, hence my post here.
Warren - Thanks for your very helpful and detailed reply.
That is a very good point you make about the AE earning limits.
I had not considered that and will pass this point on to my friend.
They also have to take into account what the market will bear.
Glad to be of some help. What your post had to do with Teaching & the price of chips. I’ve no idea?
Someone new to a country, setting up as a self-employed business consultant has to do the ground work as regards business cost, pricing & potential market. I can see your friend is looking into the pricing aspect. Good luck to him/her. Sending out Tender offers is after all market recherche.
