This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last Week's Survey

Does the price of electricity have a radical effect on your gross profit?
  • Yes it did. However, the ACT government are running a campign to share half the cost of improvements in energy saving equipment which I took up and now am paying half of what I was. I changed all of my T8 fluros in the workshop to T5's and it's a substantial saving.
  • Any price increase has an effect on a business especially if a few happen together, however if you are singling out electricity on its own, no not a radical effect. Each price increase has to take away from your bottom line unless you pass the increases on which is what I do, the Carbon Tax has yet to kick fully in.
  • yes it does, if you pay more it mean you put less in your pocket. by the way everything else as result will have price increase as well.
  • The first problem with this question os obviously that electricity should not have any baring on your GROSS profit whatsoever."GROSS" profit is what is left from the price when you remove all the "Direct and direct variable" costs associated with the project - ie Direct materials (vinyls, inks building materials etc)+ labour / contractors associated with the project. Electricity is a "Fixed expense" and should only relate to your NET profit. Being a fixed expense everyone should be calculating their "Break Even Point" related to sales required for the year through their budget forcast which they do on a minimum of a monthly basis which would include a projected electrical expenses for the year. By calculating your break even point and then knowing the amount of "Production" employees you have and the estimated productive hours they will perform per year you can calculate the real cost per chargeable productive hour (which would include allocation to cover fixed expenses - 'electricity' - for that year). once you know this you can decide your final charge out rate dependant on the amount of NET profit you wish to make. So in answer to your question NO it has NO effect on my Gross profit and by calculating it into my real cost per productive hour I can limit the effect it has on my NET profit.
  • Not at all. By introducing disciplined power usage we have reduced electricity costs by 40%
  • It does have an effect - would not say radical but defintely an effect having more than doubled in the past 6 years and does not look like getting any better.
  • the price of electricety has doubled in the last 6 month, we are still using the same amount of it but we pay double as much as before. How are we going to reflect this on the price, the only thing is a price increase which is very hard in the moment with the competion pricewars going on. The small business does not get any goverment rebates and we all struggle to make a profit these days.
  • Yes, of course it affects the profit, whats more we get hit with all these levies as well, either on the power bill water billl, or on rates, etc. It wouldn't be so bad if we saw some benefit from these levies, but there isn't any. I know this is diversifying from the question but I remember Peter Beattie (QLD Premier) announcing a new ambulance levy - he said we will have the best ambulance service in the world. What happens now, the ambos go on strike for more money and protection from the druggies that they are called upon to pick up.
