Transcript Divas Review – Working as an Independent Contractor.

An honest, reliable business, offering transcription at a good rate is the aim of Transcript Divas. Not only for clients but also for the contractors who make up the Diva team.

Transcription Rates – How much do typists get paid?

Transcript Divas aim to provide very cost-effective transcription rates to clients, but at the same time offers our contractors very competitive rates to work with us. We try to design the project management/quality control/office systems/human resources/marketing etc., to be super efficient and trustworthy so that we can pass on the savings to clients, but also offer contractors good rates as well.

The contractor rates we offer will change depending on the service a client has ordered. Essentially the more complicated and faster the project, the more the client will be charged, and the more the contractor will get paid to complete the project. Our rates for clients are here, and a recent range of rates to contractors is listed on our jobs page.

Quality – how good are our Divas?

We are the only transcription service to offer a 200% guarantee on quality and timelines, so we need high-quality contractors working with us.
You need to be on time every time. Up to quality, always.
If you are not, we simply take you off the contractor list, and you will simply stop getting work from us.

Do note,  that as a contractor, you do get the chance to “accept” or “decline” a project offer before starting it.
We don’t set up contractors to fail.

Divas are Independent Contractors

As an independent contractor (that is, self-employed), you cannot be an employee. Do not confuse being an employee (full-time or part-time) with being an independent contractor (that is, self-employed).

Tax rules are quite strict about which is which, and we have to comply with them. Some Transcription Services like to float around in the grey zone and bend the rules, we do not. UK Tax law and how being an independent contractor is different to being an employee. The HMRC test is here for review.

Still interested in Diva-dom? Whoop. Whoop.
