Hourly or fixed fees (per project, per page, per word, or per thousand words) are agreed in advance, according to the document size and the level of editing required. Rates of pay are based on those recommended by the National Union of Journalists and the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.
Payment is due within 30 days of receipt of the invoice by cheque or by money transfer. Should an invoice become overdue I reserve the right to claim statutory interest at 8% above the Bank of England base rate from day 31, in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. Statutory interest is calculated using the Better Payment Practice Campaign calculator.
