Pricing

The Virtual Office Pearl gives you the greatest flexibility on pricing. All services are available by the word, by the page, by the hour, or by the project.

Below is a list of my minimum charges* and my full range of packages available for those clients requiring ongoing support.

Please contact me for your free consultation and no obligation personalised service quote**

(All prices quoted are subject to GST and my Terms and Conditions)

*Discounts are available for Charities, and some not-for-profit organisations.

**Prices quoted in the list below are an indication of my minimum charges, and will vary according to the project and nature of the work involved.

What is included?

Each package and every quote includes all phone calls, emails, local travel and meetings so that you don’t get any nasty surprises when you open your invoice. I make sure to let you know when you’re reaching your time quoted (if taking advantage of one of my packages), so that you can decide how best to proceed.

I am always happy to extend and add extra hours should you require it, and provide another quote accordingly before continuing with the work. I ensure we work together as business partners, so you feel fully supported and up to date with all billing and payment decisions.
