VIRTUAL ASSISTANT, DEFINITION
A Virtual Assistant is an independent contractor who provides administrative services to clients while operating outside of the client’s office at a cost far less than a permanent employee.
No leave pay, no medical aid, no office expenses (telephone, desk, computers, printers, cartridges, etc)
Operating typically from a home or small office environment, a virtual secretary or assistant is able to assist with the day-to-day tasks necessary in running an office and can attend to other more specialised tasks that are required by businesses where that task does not require a full time staff member.
Virtual Assistants are being utilised far more with the increased use of the internet for business operations in these fast evolving times and especially where an on-site assistant or specialist is not required on a daily basis.
