Billable vs. Non Billable

Recommended Posts

I hope this isn't a crazy question. Well I actually have a couple of questions 😁

1. What is considered billable vs. nonbillable hours?

2. I was reading throughout the forum about charging clients in fifteen minute increments. How would this be calculated if say a job is thirty minutes?

Thank You.

I bill out in 15-minute increments which means if I worked on a project for 20 minutes then I'd bill 30 minutes. If I worked on a project for 10 minutes then I bill for 15 minutes. Hope that makes sense? This allows for refocusing between billable timeslots if you are switching between clients.

Any time I am working on clients work is billable time for me.

In regards to your other question... 

What is considered billable vs. nonbillable hours?

Billable is anything you can bill a client, so while you are working for them.
Nonbillable is things you do for your own business such as updating your website, marketing, bookkeeping etc. 

When deciding how much you can work in a week, you have to factor in client work and your own personal business work. 

Hope that helps answer that question if not, let me know.

Thank you so much!

So, for example if I am billing $30.00 and work is billed in fifteen minute increments how would a 45 min job be calculated? I hope this is not a crazy question.
