Why Hire a VA?

As a VA, I can help you with administrative tasks while you concentrate on building your business and generating revenue. And...

No Overhead

  • You don't pay for Heath Benefits, employee related taxes, vacation time, sick time, insurance, office space or training.
  • You only pay for productive time spent on your project - not idle time.

Only When You Need It

  • If you don't have enough administrative work to justify hiring an employee, call me only when you need extra support.
  • If you find yourself with a heavy workload and urgent demands at short notice, let me help you.

Using a VA Just Makes Sense . . . Dollars & Cents

Administrative Assistant vs. Virtual Assistant



Virtual Assistant

Hourly Rate of Pay



Fringe Benefits @ 35%
(Health/Dental/Life Insurance, Retirement Plans)



Overhead Rate @ 50%
(Office Space, Equipment & Office Supply expense, UI Insurance, Worker's Compensation, Overtime Pay, Administration Costs)



Total Effective Rate of Pay



**Hours Per Year

2,080 hrs.

480 hrs.

TOTAL Annual Labour Cost



Difference = $60,160.00 per year

By hiring a Virtual Assistant...You SAVE over $60,000.00 per year!

Although the Virtual Assistant's hourly rate is more than the employee's rate in
the first place, you save the cost of benefits and overhead that would have to be applied to the new employee's wage. And, because Virtual Assistant's are
usually more experienced, more efficient, and better connected than the
employee, you'll need to devote far less time to the project to get the same
results, only 480 hours a year versus 2,080 for the new employee.

**Remember, with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the time on task
by the minute! No more paying for socializing, hour long lunches or
frequent trips to the washroom.

Your employee's 8 hour day can be crunched into 3-4 hours
with a Virtual Assistant.

Simply put, you should contract with a Virtual Assistant because it's more
cost-effective and Virtual Assistants go above and beyond the normal assistant's duties to impact your own productivity. No task is too big or small for a Virtual Assistant to handle. Even if you only have 1 hour of work a month for a Virtual Assistant to do, a VA can (and will) do it.
