You can always go on your own and charge a minimum of $60 an hour.

In an office setting with that kind of experience you should get at least $50 an hour. But they may not want to pay that much and it may be worth it for them to hire someone with less experience for the job…

$60 would end up being like $125k a year working full time. That seems really high for bookkeeping.
If I had to guess I would say $40/hr, maybe $45.
But like others said they can hire someone out of seminary for a lot less, and it may not be worth it for them to pay $45 when they can pay say $28 for someone that isn't as good, but still competent.

If you go on own paying much higher tax rate so don’t keep as much. And have to take care of own overhead. Like scheduling, billing. Acquiring customers.
Has to be worth it to go on own.

I’m a bookkeeper with about 5 years experience and make around $50 hourly plus health benefits.

On my own I make $60 an hour. Both are very doable.

May I ask what your level of expertise is? Are you getting $50/hour for recording deposits and paying bills or do you do higher level work?
