VA’s often get asked “how much?” in a high pitched voice when looking at our rates; the industry average being £25/hour flexing up to £35/hour.
But take a moment to consider how much a VA spends on running their own business: tax and NI; insurance; subscriptions; memberships; compliance; marketing; utilities and training being just the basics!
The infographic, borrowed from the wonderful ladies at VIP VA demonstrates how much we actually pocket from what we charge our clients after we’ve covered our own overheads.
We are providing a support solution to many businesses: their admin is a vital component of their business and outsourcing it to an effective VA saves them both time and money. We shouldn’t have to justify our rates – we know our worth!
