I have now an opportunity to work on a ~5 months .NET and SQL project for a London, U.K. customer. I'm located in Eastern Europe and I'll work remotely from my location. I have 6 years of experience in both .NET and SQL Server.
The project deals with developing a new data import procedure and integrating it in an existing and complex .NET application.
I am interested to know how much is considered reasonable to charge per hour in this case. I've already checked payscale.com, but I feel that I need more guidance from those of you who know the U.K. market.
Your input will be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

My thoughts are:

Short-term i.e. 1-2 months - £350/daily rate.
Med-term i.e. 2-6 months - £250/daily rate.
Long-term i.e. salaried position - £30-40k or £16-18ph

If these numbers seem high, bear in mind that if you were working for a company whoring you out to a customer, you'd be worth £800-£1200 / day - no joke.

Numbers obviously variable depending on experience and client. IBM's rate will differ from that of a one-man firm.

I'd also be interested in hearing other people's opinions on this.

Note to developers:
CAST(SUBSTRING(CAST(FLOOR(NULLIF(ISNULL(COALESCE(1,NULL),NULL),NULL)) AS CHAR(1)),1,1) AS INT) == 1
So why complicate your code AND MAKE MY JOB HARDER??!Crazy

Thank you, Derek.
Obviously we're not IBM, or SAP, etc. Smile
