Australia's Richest Tradie Has Been Revealed & One Bloke Has Absolutely RAKED It In
If the Monday blues have you considering a career change, then listen up; Australia's richest tradie has been revealed and let's just say he's had a cracker of a year.
Hot off the end of the 2018 financial year, ServiceSeeking has published its annual Tradie Rich List with one Melbourne builder taking home more than most doctors, lawyers and engineers do.
The unnamed tradie, who specialises in property maintenance, renovations, demolitions and fit-outs, pocketed more than $372,000 over the last 12 months.
According to the ATO, the median wage for anaesthetists sits at about $320,000 with surgeons the next top earners with $275,000.
Combined, the top 10 tradies on ServiceSeeking took home $1,200,000 over the last financial year.
The research also revealed that handymen have seen the biggest jump in charge out rates; their average hourly cost has jumped $6 to $56.73, an 11.97 per cent increase.
It's probably worth noting that these numbers are estimates based on how many jobs each business won through the site, multiplied by the quoted price. If you're keen to check out the complete breakdown, you can see more information here.
