rental charges


I have approached a clinic for hiring one of their rooms for treatments. They would keep 40% per treatment. (60:40 to therapist) This will include a couch, they will make appointments, take payments (which I have to invoice them end of month). I have to do most of the marketing. Is this a good deal? Feedback welcomed Mansura

Hi Mansura What therapies do you practise, and what are your charges? On the face of it I think that 60-40 to therapist is a bit steep 70-30 would be more realistic. The room is better occupied at that price, than being empty and bringing in no revenue. Regards Paula Lancaster

I Agree with paula, however I think you will find that most clinics charge at least 40 or even 50% to rent a room from them. Lisa

Likewise I know places that do 40:60 split...I work in a place that takes only1/3 but they offer very little and i get quite annoyed at the inconsistent service that is offered.....might be worht trying to negotiate a discount if you do a certain amount of business...think too that you are not paying when you are not earning...some benefit there!

If you have to do most of the marketing then 40% is horrendous. If you are any good at marketing then you can set up your own business and get 100% less of course the overheads. It is the marketing that is the main issue. If they supply the clients even then them keeping 60% is too much. All they are doing is employing you and paying employee rates without them having to take responsibility for employment issues. I wouldn`t dream of renting a room based on percentage at more than 30% to them. Maximum. Caroline
