The small print
Terms & Conditions
All those involved with Choice Voices reserve the right to decline any booking request from any company or individual without having to give any reason at any time. Choice Voices will not voice any material that they deem to be illegal, offensive or criminal or which promotes offensive, illegal or criminal behaviour.
Any arrangement to record a voiceover is subject to script and content approval.
Unless otherwise agreed in advance, all items will be recorded in one of our own studios in either Ilkeston or Kegworth.
Recordings may only be used as per agreement, so a voiceover recording produced as a welcome message, may not be used on a web video; a voiceover produced for an internet slot may not be used in a broadcast commercial.
When new clients book a voice artist we reserve the option to charge a booking fee of 25% of the agreed completion fee, payable in advance.
For returning clients or Production Houses, payment is due within thirty days of project delivery. Payment in UK sterling, may by made by cheques made payable to Choice Voices or via PayPal. Established or returning clients who wish to pay electronically (via BACS) please contact us for more information.
If it transpires that the voice artist has made an error that in the read, re-recording and re-editing of that part of the audio will be undertaken at no additional cost to the client.
If it becomes necessary to re-record sections of material because of script alterations made by the client after the delivery of a completed recording, then there will be an additional fee of .15p per word, with a minimum charge of £45.00. If the script is substantially re-written (i.e. more than 30%) necessitating a complete re-recording, then 50% of the original fee will be charged (or £45, whichever is the greater). The original fee must be paid in full before any re-recording due to script changes can be undertaken.
Any postal or courier charges involved in delivering voice recordings on CD will be charged at cost and added to your final invoice.
Any requirement that a member of Choice Voices should attend a studio away from their home studios must be arranged in advance. If a client has a recording studio at their disposal, which they wish the voice artist to use, then the client shall bear the full cost of any hire charges incurred in the use of that studio and any staff charges.
If a voice artist is required to work away from a home recording studio, then he or she will charge reasonable travel expenses (mileage at 50p per mile or train/air fare if applicable). The voice artist may also charge a meal allowance depending on the number of hours that they are required to work away from their normal base during the day.
If a voice artist is required to work away at a distance of more that 150 miles from their base during unsociable hours i.e. before 0930 or after 1900, or for more than eight hours in a day, then the client will be liable for an overnight allowance of the cost of Bed and Breakfast in a mid range hotel. Again, we will only charge the actual price of the overnight stay plus breakfast.
It is not our intention to make a profit on expenses - we will only re-charge the actual cost incurred.
Each member of Choice Voices can be booked independently after agreeing their availability and negotiation of their fee. We offer a discount for clients wishing to book more than one member of Choice Voices to voice a single project.
We will never share contact information or details with a third party nor will we share information or details about the project, clips from the project on any forum, including Twitter, Facebook, the Choice Voices website, or any other VO site without express permission.
We aim to deliver a voice over which meets your expectations, on time, to the quality you require.
On completion of every job, we ask clients to send us feedback and comments and also ask clients to recommend Choice Voices to friends and colleagues.
We may request permission to use and share links to a project we have worked on as a sample on the Choice Voices website or on other websites or social media platforms.
