    Hi Steve, watching with interest as my husband is a P&D too and can't seem to get a defined salary. Think generally speaking on average it's about $25. Do you have a job set up?

    Lots of professions have 'award rates'. You could try looking that up for your occupation and see if there is one. It's basically a list of terms and conditions for that job and has minimum wages and overtime etc.

    Hi , sorry to jump on your thread but my husband is also a self employed p&d in uk. We are just in 1st stages of checking we have enough points etc at moment but wondering what best options would be for him, whether to go on his own like here or get a job for a company out there?
