What can the paperwork team do for me ?
We offer administration, secretarial, web design, PA and training services. We can handle all your back-office procedures efficiently, effectively and cost effectively.
How does it work?
When you contact us, we will take the relevant details and inform you immediately whether we are able to carry out the work you need within your timeframe. Once the Terms of Engagement have been agreed upon, the work can be sent to us (by email, fax, courier or post). Once completed, it will be sent back to you as requested. It may be that in some cases, if the work warrants it, a proof of the work will be sent to you for your review before final sign off. If required we are happy to arrange for the work to be collected and delivered by courier.

How will I be charged?
Our charges reflect the actual time we spend on getting your job done and is dependent on the task we are doing for you and the frequency of the work. To discuss the costs of your project, please call, or email, us for a free, no obligation, quotation.
Can I use you on an ad hoc basis?
Am I ready to outsource?
Very few clients who start using the service have detailed information about their business and the support they need. This is all part of the service we provide. We will take time to understand your needs and your business and agree a plan of action to suit you.
Can we meet to discuss my requirements?
Certainly! The majority of work undertaken is completed without the need to meet but with some work, for example in conference organising, there are significant benefits in having face-to-face discussions.
Can you meet our deadlines?
We will never undertake any work that cannot be completed within the time restraints of your requirements.
What are your hours of work?
We have a “can-do” attitude to work, and will work whatever hours necessary to get the job done.
Do we need to provide anything?
Our office has everything it needs to operate however if you wish to use your own letterhead and stationery you will need to supply this.
Are there any “hidden” charges?
What are your website terms and conditions?
Who is available to support me?
Customer care is very important to us, which is why we provide clients with ongoing support. We also recognise the importance of being available to our clients and we are committed to supporting this. We want the transition to outsourcing to progress as smoothly as possible.
How can I be assured of confidentiality?
The Paperwork Team is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the rules will be strictly adhered to.
How long does it take to transcribe 1 hour of audio?
It is generally accepted that we can speak four times faster than we can type and the industry standard allows 1 hour to transcribe 15 minutes of clearly recorded speech. It can therefore take up to 4 hours to transcribe a 1 hour tape depending on the complexity of the subject.
How do you price tasks?
Tasks can be priced individually depending on the type of work, complexity and the duration to complete. However, tasks are usually priced on an hourly basis. Discounts for regular work are available.
How do I get billed?
Our invoice will be sent upon completion of the work and payment can be made by bank transfer (all bank charges shall be the responsibility of the client). Terms for payment are strictly 14 days from the date of the invoice unless separate terms are agreed. For larger projects we sometimes request a 50% deposit of the estimated overall charge, to be paid before the work commences. If this is required it will be discussed with you at the outset.
Who can benefit from using us?
People working from home, small businesses, frequent travellers, families, students and anyone who wants to free up their time from administration.
Do you complete short notice tasks?
Absolutely! We are very flexible and will endeavour to assist you on short term, urgent tasks.
What locations do you cover?
Due to the nature of us being virtual, we can work with people or organisations throughout the UK.
Can you come to our office to work?
Yes, we are more than happy to work in the client’s premises.
Can you work for me on a regular basis?
Yes, we can work for you or as many, or as few, hours to suit your business, either on a regular, or an ad hoc basis.
