Virtual assistants can also be called virtual office assistants.  They are virtual in the sense that they provide assistance to clients from a home office in the form of administrative, technical, social or creative.

Most virtual assistants are self-employed and are therefore responsible for paying their own taxes.  If their job is performed from home, they fall in the same category as an independent contractor in that they work independently via the internet.

In recent years Virtual Assistants have also worked their way into many mainstream businesses and with the advent of VOIP or other services such as Skype it has been possible to have a Virtual Assistant who can answer your phone remotely without the end user’s knowledge. This allows many businesses to add a personal touch in the form of a receptionist without the additional cost of hiring someone.
