Franchise Pricing

Executives Online franchise agreements have two pricing components, an initial fee to acquire the franchise, and a management fee paid over time as a percentage of Gross Margin from your Executives Online business.

The cost of a UK regional sector franchise is £45,000 plus VAT. The fee provides you with a 5 year franchise agreement with automatic rights to renewal at no further charge.

We charge ongoing Management Service fees of 30% of the franchisees Gross Margin. In an Executives Online franchise, Gross Margin is calculated as the difference between amounts invoiced to clients and payments to candidates in interim contracts – the proportion you retain as your fee which is earned over the duration of each interim contract – plus any recruitment fees taken for introduction of candidates into permanent roles or long-term contracts. Typically, our interim contracts run at approximately 25% margin; that is, if the client is invoiced £1,000 per day for the candidate’s services, the candidate’s portion will be £750 per day.
