Transcription Services Rates

We understand that in the current economic climate keeping costs low is vital.  We believe our rates are extremely competitive.  However, your business is important to us and if you do find a more competitive quote we are willing to negotiate.  Proof will be required of any other quotations.

We charge per audio minute and not per hour. This means you know exactly how much each dictation will cost regardless of how long it has taken to type. It is estimated that a good quality dictation will take approximately 3-4 times its length to transcribe. The typist or team leader then proof reads the document for accuracy. Prices vary depending the service you require. There is a minimum charge of £10.00.
