Co s t plus and mar k et based pricing.

Hospedeiras de Portugal Lda, a large labour contractor, supplies contract labour to building construction companies. For 2008, Hospedeiras has budgeted to supply 80 000 hours of contract labour. Its variable cost is €12 per hour and its fixed costs are €240 000. Manuel Girardi, the general manager, has proposed a cost plus approach for pricing labour at full cost plus 20%.


1 Calculate the price per hour that Hospedeiras should charge based on Manuel’s proposal.
