Hoping to see some of your at the VA conference on 17th June – please come and say hello, I love meeting people!
Also if you haven’t already, please fill in the UK VA Survey – you’ll get a free copy of results for taking part, and it’s important to build a picture of what the industry really is becoming.
And lastly, I’m hoping to meet a few more SVA members over the coming months – but we need to figure out what will suit you! Tell us about where you’d like to meet face to face here. And for the online chats, tell us here.
Global VA Week:
I’d like to say another thank you to all the virtual assistants who took part in Global VA Week – whether you tweeted, met up with other VAs or joined us online… It was brilliant!
Unfortunately I’m still waiting for the download of the web chat session we did on Friday 20th May from OIVAC – I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.
Keep It Legal: Your Website
Couple of pointers here as there’s some ambiguity about what you MUST have on your website. For sole traders you must have:
- Company name
- Your own name, if it isn’t part of the company name
- The address for correspondence
- The contact details including phone number & email address
- The VAT registration number, if you are registered for VA
If worried about having your address on there, use a MailBoxes Etc or ask your accountant if they would hold mail for you. Alternatively make your address sound more “business-y” by including a house name, suite number or floor to your address.
Thanks to Dawn!
