Please use the following as a BASIC GUIDE to help give you an idea. Either contact me or my agents for more info.

- Corporate voiceover
I’d charge my BSF for internal work plus a buy-out if it is to go online of usually 100% of the total for 3 months.
- Educational voiceover
A rough guide is to budget for 24p per word. Obviously where you intend to broadcast or distribute makes a difference.
- Telephony (on-hold, IVR)
A voicemail message is totally different to a massive phone system! So, I have a £50 minimum order.
- Radio voiceover
These are based on station usage.
- TV Commercials voiceover
Session fee and usage paid according to TVRs (TV Ratings). Session fee minimum £275.
If you’re not sure what to ask for, then it may be useful to have a think about the following:
- Approximate length of the voice over script
- Broadcast or non-broadcast?
- Accent /dialect or style specifications
- Which format – mp3/wav etc?
- Do you require a sample recording of your voice over?
