How much does it cost to hire a UK freelance copyeditor or proofreader?

As a basic guide, my prices are based on the CIEP suggested minimum hourly rates:

Proofreading £26.90 per hour

Copyediting £31.30 per hour

I can give you a quote based on word count, or number of A4 pages, or a flat fee depending on your preference.

Flexible fees

I am flexible with my fees. I don't adhere to a rigid pricing structure as assignments are so varied and diverse. I will, however, provide a tailor-made quote based on your individual needs, and nature of your material.
