Are you liceansed?
If so check out the electrical talk site that is geared towards pros.
If not liceansed chances are it is illegal for you to do this work.

If you have to come onto a DIY site and ask how much to charge for this simple job, you probably shouldn't be doing this job.

By the way no electrician is going to come on here and tell you how much to charge, so no matter how many times you bump your own thread to the top you won't be getting a answer. Tell your friend to hire an electrician to do this job for them.

Not only that but the description of work needed is about as vague as could be. What size subpanel, 20 amp or 150? How many breakers and what sizes? AFCI or GFCI? How many receptacles?

First off, this description tells us nearly nothing.
"Adding a sub-panel"? That's it? $100-$1500. How's that for an estimate?

Second off, if you have to ask this question, in such a vague cryptic way, then chances are you are not nearly qualified to do this job.
Are you licensed? Do you have insurance?

Besides all that, this is a duplicate thread.

This, is a DIY site.

As such. this is an inappropriate question.

I moved this to the off topic forum. And will leave it open for a short while so the OP can read this.

This question is better suited to our sister sit, Contractor talk. Go there with this question, if your a contractor.
