Virtual Assistants are Independent Contractors who provide business services and solutions to businesses and other working professionals. They work on a remote location and do not go through the same employment procedures that a full-time employee would have to undergo. They work online and their locations vary. Normally a virtual assistant is hired by a business to be able to save on costs. A business who normally operates from home would also opt to hiring a virtual assistant as there is no office space available for new staff. Virtual assistants are normally hired either part time, full time, or per project basis. A Virtual Assistant can do anything that does not require her physical presence.

Here are some of the benefits that you can get when you hire virtual assistants:

Virtual Assistants are solely responsible for their own taxes and benefits. This makes it more cost efective than hiring an office based staff.

Virtual Assistants use their own office equipments and supplies to provide services for you. You don't have to pay for their office equipment as these VA's are already equipped with such. No worries of dealing with investing on new office equipment, furnitures and even maintenance of it.

Virtual Assistants pay their own electricity as well as internet service.

Virtual Assistants work from their home so there is no need for you to provide a physical workplace.

Virtual assistants are well educated. You are not responsible for any educational assistance as they are computer proficient and have already performed most of the services they provide earlier and are familiar with the work around an office environment.

You never have to worry about sick leaves, vacation and time offs.

You need not worry about costly trainings.

A virtual assistant is perfect for handling any periodical or seasonal projects you may have. There is always flexibility whenever you need them.

Virtual assistants are more dedicated and committed to their quality of work. As they value their work and income so much, they strive hard to perform and exceed the expectations of their employer. Since virtual assistants depend on regular clients and referrals they are definitely more dedicated and committed in their quality of work. A good referral means more business for a virtual assistant.

Your business is safe from deliberate misuse such as personal telephone calls during office hours or overtime costs due to lack of productivity.
