Heather Satterley here again with more valuable info from the 2021 Intuit® Rate Survey conducted in November 2021!
In our last article, we highlighted some of the initial survey results, including how practitioners billed their clients for various service offerings in 2021. We also covered some interesting trends involving average hourly rates for QuickBooks®-related services. Based on those initial results, it appeared as though we had given ourselves a raise since 2019.
In this article, we wanted to dive deeper into our average rates by analyzing them by category. Specifically, we looked at average billing rates by region, state, professional designation, and ProAdvisor status.
Average hourly rates by region
The first category we looked at was overall average hourly rates by region. Per our data, the highest average hourly rates belonged to the Northeast ($85) and the Southwest ($82). The survey results indicated that both the Mid Pacific and Mid Atlantic shared the lowest average hourly rate of $67.
