  2. Hi guys, Today I've been trying to click other's name on the forum, to see their profile (so clicking their names) and I get an error. Ex: I clicked this name (http://www.vanetworking.com/forum/user/445-susanne+c/) And I get this : The page isn’t redirecting properly I tried attaching an image, it didn't work.
  3. Insurance Coverage

    Tawnya? Just bumping this, in case you haven't seen my question above.
  4. Insurance Coverage

    Tawnya, you used to have a page about insurance, I got the link in an old post somewhere on the forum. http://www.vanetworking.com/protection-plan/ That page is empty now, do you have another link for us? Legal shield doesn't seem to have liability coverage, well certainly not for Quebec at least. So I am still looking for such insurance offered here in Quebec. I don't want to pay 1500$ per year understandably.... perhaps when I earn 100k per year Thank you,
  5. Hi everybody, I have developped a small expertise in doing the bookkeeping/reporting for Canadian Real Estate Brokers, Realtor and Agents. (FR: agence immobilière, courtier immobilier, agent immobilier) I use Quickbooks Online for my expertise, and it can possibly be extended to Xero as well. It allows Brokers to get (with a few click of the mouse) detailed reports on: Income per properties Expenses per properties Profit per properties Intrust / in trust reports per properties These details are very important for Realtor, Real Estate Broker's managers and having the ability to get these with only few clicks of the mouse is a huge time saving!! No need to wait for excel sheets being updated, all this is available within the bookkeeping software after I have set up the system accordingly. I believe I can help Brokers and Agents move their company to the next level of success! Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free 15 min consultation.

    Welcome Therese!!
  7. Profile link not working: Is this a forum glitch?

    Naaah, I manually change the %2b -__- -___- At least... we have a solution!!!! until a fix...
  8. Package Pricing

    Hi Janine, Yes exactly what I do as well, This way the client can't tell you "I thought it was included in your services". Defining what is included in a package, in a contract, is very important Then stating the rest is extra cost, at least allows you to charge extra. I always discuss with the client first when something falls into the 'extras', this way they don't even have a surprise One has to be the less 'blurry' possible.
  9. Package Pricing

    You should definitively offer a "any other hours would be customizable if needed" option. As you go, check what potential clients ask for, if you see that 20 hrs is often requested, or 30, go on and create a new package
  10. Time Tracker Programs

    I use Freshbooks for tracking my time, tracking my projects (internal, external), for invoicing my clients, for checking timesheets, for getting paid online, etc... I like it very much. Although Freshbooks advertise themselves as a "bookkeeping" apps, it does nothing good for bookkeeping in my opinion (not judging anyone here , but is really good for time tracking. They have a tracker to actually countdown time, you can pull many type of reports, it exports to excel, and for a certain cost, you can pay for an app to integrate FB with QBO and Xero (so invoices are added to QBO). I had a look at other apps, but FB was my choice.
  11. Profile link not working: Is this a forum glitch?

    Thank you so much Mark for looking deeper into this issue, I really appreciate the time you put into this!
  12. Profile link not working: Is this a forum glitch?

    Hey Sorry for my late replies... I use Firefox 49.0.x All cache were deleted, booted many times, and still does not work. I will do what Mark says with the url but............................ Now it's worste: I cannot edit my profile anymore!!! it gives me the same error when I click on the link "My profile". I am really stuck. I don't like Chrome, so sorry this is not an option for me. I'm trying to put an image here and the forum won't let me, why is that? I want to show you guys where I mean I'm clicking but I can't (I've reported the "+" url issue to Firefox, for what it is worth..)
  13. Profile link not working: Is this a forum glitch?

    Can anyone else try? Tawnya, do you have another test account (not admin) you can log in and try clicking profile links? Updates: any profile that does not have a space, the profile page opens. Names that have space like mine, give me a page error. Tawnya's profile opens.... it's twilight zone... I did ask for a display name change last week, maybe the space which adds a "+" in the url messes up things.

  16. Going all in!!

    Hi Nikki, I was going to say there is a spreadsheet available on this site that will help you find a general price, than Danielle beat me to it So it's here: http://vanetworking.com/free And of course, see what agencies around are charging and pretty much "copy" (I don't like that work) them (unless they are too low, then charge higher). You will eventually advertise and still win clients
  17. Kellymann, Do you do VBA programing in Excel? If you do, make sure to say it in your description, website, facebook page (not profile, page), etc..
  18. Bookkeeping Question Regarding Expense Receipts

    Hi Denise, I too like to have all receipts when booking expenses (not only the credit card statements for instance), because we get details on what the expense was about, and tax splits, and I explain these advantages to my clients. If the customer can't or doesn't want to bother with supplying me with all the receipts, I have them sign a Waiver of Liability. If my client supplies me with receipts and some are missing, I look at the amount: if it is considerable I will ask them if they have the invoice. If the amount is.. you know, 5$, I don't ask my client and just book it (because just one receipt missing here and there isn't problematic).

  19. Hi Kellymann, Welcome to the forum I'd say that you can indeed specialize in this area of services: excel, access, powerpoint, etc... As a VA, I don't think you have to do everything an admin VA does, especially if you describe your services clearly on your website and bids. I could be wrong, maybe VA is associated to 'all admin tasks', but take me for instance, I don't offer all admin tasks services; I'm a bookkeeper/Accountant and my services are only related to that. So, that being said, I think you have a nice specialty / niche
  20. It's so sad to see (delusive)clients wishing to get a subcontractor for that rate. I do know that in some parts of the world this is good pay, but... yeah.
  21. Hello guys! I'm considering the VAinsider membership. I'd like to get an idea of how many job postings (RFP) are added to said forum per week? If I join it's mainly for having access to quote on jobs, not very much to use all the downloadable materials, because I'm well advanced and established in my business processes. Therefore, it's important for me to know the average amount of new RFP a week or a month. Thanks to anyone answering!
  22. Job postings

    Thank you Tawnya, Indeed I read somewhere that the jobs posted here are not low pay and that are from clients already understanding the value of our services
  23. I would like to reach Tawnya by email

    Hi everybody, Hi Moderators, I would like to ask Tawnya some questions about the VAinsider membership, I've sent her a PM, but I'm guessing she doesn't visit often (being the busy woman she is) So can someone share with me her email addy by pm? I haven't found it when I looked around. Thank you!!!
  24. I would like to reach Tawnya by email

    Thank you Tawnya!
  25. Bookkeeping Rates

    I'd like to add an example. I have a customer who doesn't have many transactions a month. About 25. However.... His transactions are very complicated and a pain to a degree. Instead of taking just 2 hours a month to fix transactions, reconcile, etc.. It takes me easily 4 to 5 hours. I wouldn't be profitable if my price was based on his low volume of transactions. This is why trying out 2-3 months and charging hourly during that time, will help you better find a fixed rate Nadine LeBrun | Onyxia Bookkeeping Bookkeeper and Accountant Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor | Xero Certified Advisor | Certified QuickBooks Online Payroll
