Profitable Outsourcing for VAs

For any VA, whether getting started, or running a team, the question of outsourcing to associates comes up.

Whether it is just to provide holiday and sickness cover, or part of a strategy to outsource to a bigger team – you can’t get away from it. Yet, if it goes wrong it can result in damage to your reputation, lost clients, and even worse. From tax, to copyright and data security – the whole area can be a minefield.

You need to protect your business and your clients by getting your outsourcing right.

In this humourous but serious talk, you will learn:

  • How to decide what work must legally be kept in the UK/EU
  • Create systems for securely handling your client’s data
  • Understand what legal rights an outsourced VA has
  • Set yourself up so HMRC won’t be coming to you for your outsourced VAs tax.
  • Understand the difference between paying a company and paying an individual

All done with storytelling, and an engaging style.

You will go home armed with an action plan to secure your business and set up REAL agreements that will help enhance your VA brand and profitability.
