The effort rate is the ratio between the rent and charges (co-ownership charges and property tax in particular) and the turnover generated by the exploitation in the property, object of the rent.

For the latter category, it has its own calculation methods which we will study in another section.
The effort rate is a very important ratio for the business manager, who must monitor him periodically, at the risk of endangering his structure.
