Not entirely sure what you are worth in the VA world but know what you are worth in the real world.

Here’s a really simple way to work it out…

1. What would you earn in the “real world” for your skills eg $50,000
2. Divide that by 52 to work out your weekly rate
3. Divide that by 38 to get your hourly rate
That gives you your hourly rate (inclusive of tax)

4. Add 9.5% for super as you need to pay your own super and tax

That’s your LOWEST rate you should offer

For $50k that works out to be $27 per hour.

The average VA in Australia starts at $25 and can go up to $70 if you have very specialised skills.
