Topic: Cost to run USRC > Splitting roast's EOR > RE: (39 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Can't speak directly to running the USRC 1# since running a USRC 3k model.
(For reference 1# has 5k BTU burner versus 3k 25k BTU) The start up
acquisition costs aside which are substantial, the roasting cost in propane
comes to approximately as low as $0.05 per LB depending on batch sizes
roasted and how many batches roasted in a session.
Total cost per LB over time is complicated to calculate. Need to factor not
just initial capital outlay but how depreciation etc. affects tax bottom
line etc. If buying a small commercial roaster for strictly personal use
with zero selling and hence no business write offs would be another matter.
But if using with some customers (and reporting as a business to IRS) the
actual bottom line "cost" over time would be much less than what you paid up
front. You don't even have to "initially" report a business profit to the
IRS to take advantage of business tax savings, just intent to profit. Of
course if you don't eventually report a profit they'll re-classify the
activity as a hobby not a business and kiss your current (and past) claimed
business expense deductions good-bye.
