Hi everyone

We've had an email in response to our article "How much should I charge" (Freelancers ask: how much should I charge? :: Freelance UK) pointing us to this spreadsheet for working out a starting point for a daily rate:

How does everyone else set their rate? Do you use similar spreadsheets or a formula to tot up overheads so you have a starting point before you then look further to what a client is likely to pay/what the competition charge etc?

Would be very interested in everyone's thoughts..
