Four Tasks You Should Outsource To A Virtual Assistant

If you’re an overworked entrepreneur with a never-ending to-do list, you may want to consider hiring a personal assistant. But before you hire a personal assistant, it’s important to think about all of your options including outsourcing your work to a virtual PA.

A virtual assistant does the exact same tasks as a personal assistant, however, usually more cost effective and can easily hand work over if they are away; ensuring you’re always kept up to speed and fully free to work on your business.

With this in mind, here are four tasks you should consider outsourcing to a virtual assistant.


Keeping an eye on your accounts can be tedious and time-consuming. Thankfully, a virtual assistant can be a great helping hand when it comes to bookkeeping. While they will be unable to take on the role of a fully-fledged accountant, they will be able to help out with outstanding invoices and unpaid bills.

Diary Management

With meetings, events and appointments piling up, managing those around other important aspects of your business can be stressful. One of the most common tasks that a virtual assistant is requested to do is diary management. Whether it’s booking accommodation for a trip or scheduling appointments, a virtual assistant can do all of these things so you can concentrate on your business with peace of mind.

Event Planning

If you can’t afford the time to plan and manage your events, why not use the support from a virtual assistant? Our assistants at Virtual PA UK specialise in event management, whether your looking for help promoting the event with social media marketing or corporate event planning, we have an assistant to suit your individual needs.

Call Answering

Perhaps the most requested virtual pa service. Call answering services are a cost-effective alternative to hiring an in-house receptionist. A virtual assistant can provide a variety of call answering services, including sending out appointment reminders, transferring calls to the appropriate person and delivering a high level of customer service.
