What is overhead?
There are many factors that tack on added expenses to an employee's salary. Factors such as location can single handedly increase the base expected salary for a position, depending on the cost-of-living. Other factors such as taxes, unemployment insurance, employee benefits, 401(k), FICA, and even more are costs expended by employers on top of their employees base salaries.
How much is this overhead?
There are differing averages and percentages that employers can use to calculate their estimated employee overhead. These values only differ slightly, but an employee could cost an employer an average of 1.4 times their base salary.
This means that your Bookkeeper, whose salary is $40,000 could actually cost your business upwards of $56,000. Let us help with that!
