I am paid a monthly rate but I only worked a portion of the

This answer was rated:

I am a contractor and I my agreement states that I am paid a monthly rate of $7500 with the expectation that I will work a 4 day work week (8 hours per day). This month, I only worked a portion of the month. I worked from July 8 - 31, and that included 4 days each of the first three weeks, and then 3 days the last week.

For what dollar amount should I invoice?



By the way, your site is a little misleading. I asked for "chat" and was told experts were online now.

Dear Friend,

As per your agreement your daily rate is

7500 / 31


so for 24 days

24 X 242

=$ 5,808 Dollar invoice to be raised

But if you four days are fixed that is Monday tuesday or etc. than calculation may differ

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Thanks. The 4 days are fixed - Half day Monday and half day Friday, full days Tues, Weds, Thurs. How does that change it? And why?

Dear then you may calculate on actual basis,

that is month of july 2013 has 18.5 days of total available working days as per you agreement so

daily rate shall be

7500 / 18.5

= 405.5

and you have worked for 14.5 days


405.5 X 14.5

= 5,879 dollars to be raised

Please rate my answer so i can be remunerated for my advise, thanx

Dear Friend, Hello and welcome.


I have some different calculation for you and therefore this answer. In my opinion, you are charging $7500 for 19 Days if this is a contractual work. Therefore your remuneration works out as 7500/19=$394.75 Per Day. Going by first 4 days of each week, for July, it works out 19 working days. You say you have worked for 15 days, I.e. 4+4+4+3=15 days.


You should invoice him for 394.75*15= $5921.75


I am sure this would help.....

as per the agreement the days are fixed that is half day of Monday, full day for tuesday, wednesday, thursday and half day of friday so there is no need to go with the assumption of first 4 days of week when something is actually stipulated. so the appropriate invoicing amount shall be

405.5 X 14.5

= 5,879 dollars to be raised
