Service Charges

Dear Dave
Do most firms mark up reimbursable expenses passed along to their clients, and if so, what is the typical handling markup added?

Dear HC
It is my experience that the majority of firms today do indeed apply a markup to out-of-pocket expenses incurred on behalf of a client project. I would venture that the typical markup range is between 10 and 15%. I’m aware of some firms that charge as much as 25%, but they are in the minority.
