- What is a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant is a self employed professional providing various office administrative tasks for individuals, small and medium sized companies.
- Do I need to provide any office equipment/office space?
No unless you wish to, we have own office and equipment.
- Why should I not just employ someone?
You may work remotely yourself or only need someone to complete a one-off project. Maybe you have regular work to outsource but would prefer to pay a simple monthly invoice rather than run payroll. You will only pay us for actual work carried out. With an employee you will have additional costs such as National Insurance, PAYE, holiday pay, sickness, training, etc to consider.

- How will we communicate?

We are based in Hertfordshire just outside London.
- What geographical area do you cover?
