Also how long do you all keep your trailers on the books before they are depreciated
I only do a few trailer jobs and I do work out a rate of vehicle fuel based on the 40p mark for tow vehicle and add the same for the trailer tow/boat, so if one way I just add the extra on that. I am careful though as once you start adding does that then fall under commercial vehcile and a Tacho needed? ( no idea).
I work out a fair rate to get the craft to a location but regularly see that as part of the job especially if local. I also see this with runs to other ports on the water this becomes part of booking and quite often there is a fixed price so throttle hand is pinned back!
Trailer I buy with the RIB so when RIB goes so does trailer. Accountant works depreciation into costings
