Additional Items

Please be sure to read the FAQs page concerning what I consider audio spot check for scoping.  

If the correction of excessive drops, mistranslates, and/or untranslates causes the final page count to exceed the original page count by five pages or more, a charge of $0.50 per page will be added to the stated page rate. This additional charge will only be added to the excess pages beyond the original page count. The extra charge will not apply if formatting or paragraphing corrections are the only cause of the change in page quantity.

Page rates quoted are for the standard 25 lines per page. Transcripts longer than this standard may incur an additional charge which would be discussed ahead of time. 

I do not charge extra for highly technical or medical jobs.

Final proofreading should always be done by the court reporter or a separate proofreader. I do not offer proofreading as a separate service at this time. 

The clock for turnaround time starts ticking when I receive the job files. I no longer use a cutoff time; instead, I count each 24-hour period out from the time the files come in to the time you need the completed file back and use that to determine the rate for that job. 

I always strive to return work to you as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality. If I complete a job ahead of schedule, I will return it to you ahead of schedule. I do not "sit on" completed work. In return, I ask that if you need a scoping job expedited or rushed, please order that job as such. Please do not request normal turnaround then ask two days later if the job is finished yet. 

Invoicing and Payment         
For the first few jobs, invoices will be sent with the completed transcript and payment will be due on receipt. Once a working relationship is established, invoices will be emailed on the 1st and 15th of each month and payment will be due within 15 days.

Payments can be made by credit/debit card via the secure link sent from our web-based accounting service. Payment by money order or Paypal is also accepted if you prefer. 

Returned payments will be subject to a $30 fee and may cause late fees as well.

Invoices not paid on time will be subject to an initial $25 late fee. Invoices that remain unpaid will incur an additional $15 fee each week past the due date. Any invoices still outstanding after 60 days may face legal action, and the customer will be responsible for all costs associated with such action.
