Working with a Virtual Assistant, an independent contractor, is a great way to get the support you need while only paying for the support you use. This allows you to reduce downtime by not having employee breaks decreasing productivity. You are not responsible for employee related taxes, superannuation, or leave requirements - one less thing to worry about in your business.
Your office expenses reduce by not needing a physical office space, computer equipment or stationery. I work from my home office which is equipped to support your needs as a business.
Working with a Virtual Assistant can help to free up your valuable time as a business owner, allowing you the required time to dedicate towards growing your business, having the support to manage the day to day.
