You work from home for a client who uses you as a contractor to provide products and services for other clients.

  • Your hourly rate is fixed by your client.
  • You quote the hours you estimate it will take for each job; keep track of your own hours.
  • You enter those hours in the client’s web-based accounting system.
  • No questions asked.
  • Ever.

The client asks you to travel to their client site, out of your city, 40 Kilometres away, but won’t pay travel costs because it is still in THEIR definition of the metropolitan area.

They WOULD pay to a different site, even though that site is only 20 Kilometres away.

Question 1: Do you inflate your at-home hours to compensate for your client’s travel-expenses short-sightedness?
