### How to Calculate Profit per Job in a Construction Company

Calculating profit per job in a construction company involves several steps. Here's a general guide on how to do it:

Relevant templates:

1. Calculate your total revenue for the job: This includes all the money you received from the client for the specific project.
2. Determine the total direct costs: These are the costs directly related to the project, such as materials, labor, and equipment.
3. Calculate the total indirect costs: These are the overhead costs that are not directly related to the project, but still incurred during the project period, such as rent, utilities, and administrative expenses.
4. Subtract the total direct and indirect costs from the total revenue: This will give you the gross profit for the project.
5. Calculate your net profit: Subtract any other expenses, such as taxes or interest payments, from the gross profit to get your net profit.
6. Divide the net profit by the number of jobs completed: This will give you the profit per job.

For example, if a construction company completes a job for \$100,000 and the direct costs for the job were \$60,000 and indirect costs were \$10,000, the gross profit for the job would be \$30,000 (\$100,000 - \$60,000 - \$10,000). If the company had additional expenses of \$5,000, the net profit would be \$25,000. If the company completed 10 jobs in a given period, the profit per job would be \$2,500 (\$25,000 / 10 jobs).
