This spreadsheet can help you work out how much you need to earn in a year to break even, or to build a surplus. It contains dummy figures - replace these with your own estimated costs and how much you can realistically bill in fees. This spreadsheet is a forecasting tool only - it is not an exact science, but it will at least give you ballpark figures to help your financial planning.
