There are still several business owners who aren’t sure what a Virtual Assistant (VA) actually does, and I don’t blame you. VA is still such a new term, and it is so broad that it covers a lot of bases. A VA is a business owner, like yourself, who supports other business owners remotely.
As you are hiring an independent contractor, it is similar to having an employee working with you, remotely, but without the added stress and paperwork an employee brings.
Some of the benefits to hiring a Virtual Assistant to take control of the administrative tasks within your business are outlined below.
Gain, or maintain work/life balance
Get more done that YOU want to do
Only pay for the time worked
Reduced operational costs
No employee related taxes, superannuation or leave requirements
No payroll, only invoices to pay
