How a Virtual Assistant can help to Brexit-proof your business

Britain has a new Prime Minister who is promising to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union by the end of October. It’s set to be an uncertain time for business – changes in supply chains, funding and legal requirements are definite but are still to be decided. Add to this a lack of consumer confidence and the business environment becomes a hotbed of uncertainty.

But Brexit doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. Robust planning will enable you to position your business for Brexit success. Taking on this extra work can be challenging, and that’s where using a Virtual Assistant can help.

A good Virtual Assistant can step in and seamlessly assist your team with a minimum of fuss. You may have teams dedicated to preparing for Brexit and a Virtual Assistant can support them with tasks such as research, project management or preparing presentations.

Likewise, many businesses find that with so much resource dedicated to the impact of Brexit, they could benefit from an extra pair of hands to take care of day-to-day activities.  An experienced Virtual Assistant will give you the confidence to hand over time-consuming tasks such as bookkeeping or managing social media accounts – leaving you free to concentrate on getting ready to Brexit.

As well as this, using a Virtual Assistant service can help you to save money. Expensive costs associated with staffing are minimised, for example, there’s no need to invest in equipment or office space for your latest team member. This leaves you free to invest in other areas of your business or perhaps you’d rather use this money as a safety net over the next 12 months?

The flexibility offered by Virtual Assistants is another factor which could help you to successfully Brexit. Venice Virtual is ready to jump in and help when you need it. We work around the needs of the businesses on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ or retainer basis, giving you total control over the budget – imagine having the freedom to employ someone only when you need them!

So, with the next few months promising to be a rollercoaster of opportunities and threats to businesses, the question is:

Are you prepared to Brexit?
