If the proofreading time exceeds 30 minutes, the minimum billing unit is 30 minutes. Manuscripts that requires 30 minutes for proofreading are billed 500 NTD. Manuscripts that requires 30-45 minutes for proofreading are billed 1 hour. A 20% service fee is added to the total charge.

To avoid disputes, the applicant shall inquire about only one proofreader's price quote at a time. After receiving a decline letter from the author about the price quote, the FLC will forward the price quote request to look for another proofreader.
