We are seeing more businesses swapping out their PAYE PA’s and replacing them with VA’s. We have recently taken on several new clients who are reaping the huge benefits of switching.


Here are just 5 reasons why using a VA from VA Whiz may just be the best decision you ever made.

  • Reducing Costs

Not only is a VA flexible, but there are also huge financial cost savings to be made. A virtual assistant is similar to a personal assistant, but instead of being physically present in an office, they work remotely. By hiring an experienced virtual assistant, businesses could save as much as 78% in operating costs, which we are sure you will agree is a significant amount! Unlike PAYE staff, a VA is only paid for the productive work that they do at an hourly rate. So - no holiday pay, no sick pay, no overheads, no downtime, and no new hire expenses!

  • Time is of the essence

Successful businesses recognise that time is the best asset to keep a tight grip on. Rather than wasting time and resources on day to day operations, business owners can focus on strategic leadership for long term growth and success.  VA’s can also work across different time zones, so we are not limited to location unlike permanent members of staff.


  • Escaping the abyss of admin and boosting efficiency

It is easier than you think to offload all those horrible tasks that eat into your evenings and weekends and can cloud your thought processes for growing your business and doing what you do best. VA’s can provide administrative support in all shapes and sizes from calendar management to data entry and book keeping to event organising. They can be the engine room that sits behind the scenes of your business.

  • Gaining access to specialised services

At VA Whiz, we have a team of highly experienced VA’s offering every imaginable skillset across a wide range of industries so you can be sure that we can match the right VA to suit you and your company’s needs. Our bespoke service means that industry knowledge and skill set can be accurately matched to the client’s remit. So if you need a legal VA or someone that specialises in marketing we have the right VA for the job. There is added comfort in knowing that we always check in and ensure the match stays perfect and if it doesn’t we can fix it and swap in another VA Whizette at a moment’s notice.



  • Gaining peace of mind and avoiding burnout

Did you know that hiring a virtual assistant can help with entrepreneur burnout? Company problem-solving can often feel nearly impossible to turn off. Even when you aren’t ‘on the clock,’ you often find yourself troubleshooting and brainstorming. The potential for mental exhaustion is real, but that’s only part of the equation.

On top of the ongoing mental toil of owning a business, you face the logistics side. That to-do list can seem a mile long, which can lead to persistent feelings of inadequacy. If the stress of too many tasks weighs heavily on you for long, that can lead to business owner burnout and overwhelm.

Spending time on leisure activities is paramount to our health and productivity.  Taking on a VA can help you accomplish tasks that keep you from the rest you so desperately need. That way, you can step away for a while and become the best version of yourself.
