Many small business owners, Virtual Assistants (“VA”) included, are first-time entrepreneurs, and sometimes, they forget to treat client relationships as formal business transactions, which require a client contract to put you in the driver’s seat.
No matter what industry you’re in, your client contract should always be written specifically for your small business.
When written by a professional expert, your contract can be written to allow you great latitude and discretion when completing your work as well as protect you from liability.
A Virtual Assistant Contract allows you, the VA, to determine things like:
- the minimum or maximum amount of hours worked for a client each month;
- The scope of the VA’s assignments and work load;
- When the VA is available to discuss items with the Client AND how she prefers to communicate; and
- Client expectations and VA obligations
If you don’t have a professionally drafted contract, you’ll have repeated issues with Clients, especially when it comes to being paid on time and client conduct.
