High-Quality English Proofreading and
Editing Services for all Academic Areas


Our special rates are £8.99 per thousand words or 0.899 pence 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 0.899 pence 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 personal cheque, by transferring the money into our HSBC bank account or by sending us the payment by Western Union. We can also accept credit card payments through PayPal or Sage Pay.

Academic-Editing-Services.com is VAT (Value Added Tax) registered and that means we have to charge our customers VAT (currently 20 per cent) on top of the original price. The VAT registration is not optional; we are obliged to do this by UK law.

There are, however, two exemptions that will apply to many of our customers:

(1) Customers from outside the European Union (EU). If you provide us with your full address details including postcode we do not have to charge you VAT.

(2) Customers from a non-UK business or institution that is VAT registered in any other EU country (this includes most of the universities). In this case, we need your institution’s VAT registration number and the full address details including postcode of the institution in order to exempt you from VAT.
