Starting Out

How to Run a Successful Transcription Business from Home


Worried you are working too hard without adequate reward? Looking to work from home and make a good living?


Setting up a transcription, typing or secretarial service could be the solution you have been looking for. There are transcription companies in the UK with a multi-million pound turnover.

But how do you get going? Where do you start? How do you get business?

Common questions include:

“How do I advertise?”  “How much will it cost to set up a business”, “Should I work on a self-employed basis or set up a limited company?”, “How do I go about tendering for work?”, “What equipment do I need”, “What are the legal requirements for transcription”.

The Transcription Society offers you a guide for just £19.99 to help you not only set up a transcription business but also build/expand on an existing home-based transcription business. Suitable for all transcribers, remote assistants, secretaries and typists, it provides an invaluable source of information on both starting out and attracting more work.

For just £19.99, if you order online, you will receive an eBook together with templates covering quotations, invoices, confidentiality undertakings, consultancy contracts, terms and conditions, a business plan and lots more.
