Why use a VA?
Trent VA is a business service that provides flexible admin solutions to cut costs for our clients. With no employer responsibilities, systems fees, or insurances to pay, using Trent VA saves our clients an average 50-70% on providing the same service in house.
How do you access our data and systems securely?
We take data security very seriously and at Trent VA we are registered with the ICO as data processors. We also use secure methods of password sharing meaning we can log into systems remotely without even seeing your login details.
I’m not sure you’ll understand our industry.
Our clients spend 90% of their contract working with one dedicated team member. This way we gain a deeper understanding of the business as we learn the ropes just as an employee would. If you haven’t already check out our testimonials take a look to see what our clients say.
Will I meet our VA in person?
Possibly, possibly not. Although we are based in the East Midlands our clients and team members are located all across the UK, so it may be possible to meet up, but we mainly keep in touch though WhatsApp or Zoom.
Will there be a formal agreement?
Yes, so we clarify what tasks are being done and how we will issue a contract. This helps both sides understand the work agreed, and that it also covers the legal stuff around GDPR and IR35.
Our contracts include a confidentiality clause whereby all work is handled in strict confidence. They also cover copyright.
Will I be locked into the contract when I sign? If not, how long do they last?
No, we do not lock anybody into any contract or agreement, our retainers self-renew every month for 12 months. We will review regularly, amend, and issue a new contact, as necessary.
When will my work get done?
This very much depends on the work requested. We aim to process work within agreed timescales using our professional skills to complete tasks as required. Yes, that can sometimes mean we work odd hours, but that is our choice.
When will the work start?
As soon as the contract is signed, we will start onboarding your work. We use secure online signature systems to complete this and no work will start until signed contracts are in place.
What happens if there is an error in the work?
We always ask that clients check work, any errors by us will be redone asap, if it’s something that got missed in the instructions then we will add this to the work rota.
When and How do I pay?
Invoices are issued in arrears on (or as near as) the 1st of the month and have 7 days payment terms. All payments can be made by BACS (we find setting up a standing order works best), sorry we no longer take cash or cheques.
How do cancel my services?
We ask for 1 months written notice for all cancellations, if the retainer is cancelled mid-month a pro rata figure will be agreed.
