Statistics show that employees actually cost 2 to 2 1/2 times their rate of pay when their full costs are included: base salary, FICA, FUTA, SUTA, Medicare, workers comp, overtime, vacation, sick leave, breaks and other unproductive time, administrative costs, recruitment, training, management, compliance programs, insurance, office space and furnishings, equipment, software, etc. Because The Virtual Office Goddess is a contractor and NOT an employee, none of these costs apply when working with us.

All Services are billed at $55.00 per hour and are billed in 15 minute increments (1 hour minimum/month) – OR – you may choose to pay a monthly retainer for a prepaid block of time (12, 20, 32, 40 hours per month) at a 10% discount. If you choose to purchase blocks of time, any additional hours during the month are billed at the reduced rate; any unused hours do not carry forward and cannot be redeemed.

If you are ready to set up your bookkeeping, but are not yet ready to hire a bookkeeper, I recommend my book “How To Do Your Own Small Business Bookkeeping“, which is available in QuickBooks Pro 2013,  2012/2011, and 2008 versions and QuickBooks Simple Start 2010 (free version).
