Our scientific editing prices are £14.00 per thousand words or 1.4 pence per word.
We charge according to the length of your medical, biological or physical science document, not hourly. The advantage of this is that you are able to calculate a fixed price for your scientific work. Once we have received your science paper we will give you a definite price according to the following formula: word count multiplied by 1.4 pence equals the fixed price.
Even if heavy scientific editing is required and we have to spend more time on your science document than we anticipated, we guarantee that the price will not go up.
You can pay by transferring the money electronically into our HSBC bank account. We can also accept credit card payments through PayPal.
Proof-Reading-Services.com is VAT (Value Added Tax) registered and that means we have to charge our customers VAT (currently 20 per cent) in addition to the original price. The VAT registration is not optional; we are obliged to do this by UK law.
There are, however, three exemptions that will apply to many of our customers:
(1) Customers from a business or institution (this includes universities as well as research and governmental organizations) from outside the European Union (EU). If you provide us with your full address details, including the postcode, we do not have to charge you VAT.
(2) Individual customers from outside the EU. If you provide us with your full address details, including the postcode, we do not have to charge you VAT.
(3) Customers from a non-UK business or institution that is VAT registered in any other EU country (this includes most universities and research organizations). In this case, we need your institution’s VAT registration number and full address details, including the postcode of the institution, in order to exempt you from UK VAT.
Customers based outside the European Union do not have to pay VAT as exemption (1) or (2) above applies. As long you send us your institutional or private address we do not have to charge you VAT.
