Frequently Asked Questions
A Virtual Assistant (or VA) is a service provider who specializes in providing administrative support services and works with clients in an ongoing, collaborative professional relationship.
Virtual Assistants are business owners who work from their own offices and utilize today's technology to deliver their services and communicate with clients.
A Virtual Assistant's support is foundationally administrative, secretarial and clerical in nature. However, many Virtual Assistants offer additional specialties that fall under creative and technical services.
Virtual Assistants come from a variety of business backgrounds, but the single-most important qualification to become a Virtual Assistant is at least five (5) years administrative experience earned in the real (non-virtual) business world working in upper level capacities such as administrative assistant, executive assistant, secretary, legal assistant, paralegal, legal secretary, real estate assistant, office manager, etc.
From this level of experience, a VA is expected to possess the skill sets, training, and business knowledge which are the hallmark of a truly qualified Virtual Assistant.*
Basically any type of business can utilize the services of a Virtual Assistant. Some examples of a business that would benefit from the services of a VA include:

The answer is a resounding YES. When working with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the actual time worked. When a VA takes a break, runs an errands or handles a project that is not related to you, you are not being billed for that time. You do not have to pay a VA for benefits, sick time, holiday or vacation pay, taxes, Worker’s Compensation Insurance, Disability Insurance, or Unemployment Insurance. We have our own virtual office, computer and other equipment, and office supplies that are more than adequate to handle any of your requests.
At BAC Virtual Solutions, we use a computer program that allows us to track our time and tasks for each project that we work on. This ensures that you will only be invoiced for work performed on your project.
