QuestionRetiring soon and will be consulting for my old employer - how, and how much, to charge? Pin

Yes, thanks to French retirement law and being on a salary from BT while at Uni I am going to be able to retire at the end of the month.

My employer wants to keep me on as a consultant which will involve some specification/standards drafting, occasional phone IT support and site visits for hardware installation/configuration (we have a SAN project that starts in June).

I have been advised to charge twice my current hourly salary, which seems reasonable, but I am wondering about how to charge. What do others think about, for example, charging a minimum half a day if I have to go into the office? Or minimum 30 minutes for any support phone calls?

All ideas and comments welcome.
