Frequently asked questions

A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent contractor who provides off-site administrative professional support.  There are numerous advantages to hiring a VA over an employee.  VA’s only work the hours you need, you only pay for productive hours, and there are no agency fees, payroll taxes, worker’s compensation, employee benefits or office space to worry about or pay for.
