Our special USA flat rate prices are US$13.50 per thousand words or 1.35 cents per word.
We charge according to the length of your document, not hourly. The advantage of this is that you are able to calculate a fixed price for your work. Once we have received your document we will give you a definite price according to the following formula: word count multiplied by 1.35 cents equals the fixed price.
Even if heavy editing is required and we have to spend more time on your document than we anticipated, we guarantee that the price will not go up.
You can pay by transferring the money electronically into our American HSBC bank account in New York City. 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.
USA or Canada based customers do not have to pay VAT as exemption (1) or (2) below applies. As long you send us your institutional or private address we do not have to charge you VAT.
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
