What are the best ways to approach a business about sub-contracting them and what should I expect/prepare for when doing so?

I've never hired a sub-contractor, so I don't know how to navigate this. What information do I need to have prepared prior to reaching out to someone? Who pays them -- me or my client -- and does that change from project to project? How do I work that cost into my budget/revenue projections?

I had wondered the same thing and have done some research, if someone is more knowledgeable about this topic, please correct me. To my understanding, you need to be a contractor to hire sub-contractors, so if you don't have a contractor license, then the client is the one that will have to hire and pay them. My experience is with construction, and home improvement so your needs may be different than mine
