"We hear from members frequently that many contractors make common errors in figuring out how to achieve their target gross margin when figuring out a sales price," said Kevin W. Holland, ACCA’s vice president for Communications & Membership Services. "Working with contractors over the last few months, we've been able to develop a very simple calculator that our members can use to help make sure that the margin they want is the margin they get."
