Perhaps, better than asking what an assistant is capable of is asking what they are not capable of. Prosper has seen that an assistant can be trained on almost any task but it depends on how much time the owner is willing to invest into training the assistant. Prosper does not recommend having any assistants handle any company funds, transfer money in any facet for the business nor have access to application data such as social security numbers. Prosper is not responsible if an owner client allows their virtual assistant to handle any financial matters for the company. We also do not recommend having any Prosper assistants draft any legal contracts creating a relationship between yourself and a 3rd party. Prosper will not be held responsible for any legal contracts that are drafted without their permission.
Many of our Accounting assistant help with reconciling payroll, timesheets and mileage reimbursements. We do not recommend allowing assistants to have the ability to handle money on behalf of your company and Prosper does not accept any liability if the client decides to give their assistant this privilege.
