Our Rates are based on the type of project/work and time required for completion. As such our fees vary from R350 – R550 per hour. Depending on the nature of the work The Assistant charges hourly/per project or on a retainer basis.

HOURLY/PROJECTS – these packages are ideal for ad-hoc work for clients with a minimum charge of one hour. The client is invoiced when work is completed and payment is due on presentation of our invoice.

RETAINERS – these packages are ideal for clients who might require regular work to be done. These retainer packages can be negotiated depending on the estimated hours required for the month. Retainers work on a month-to month basis or pre-determined time and is invoiced in the beginning of the month and payable by the 15th of each month. A thirty-day notice period will be applicable should either party wish to terminate the retainer.

Any additional costs (e.g. visa fees, dry cleaning costs, etc.) are for the client’s account and will be payable as per arrangement between The Assistant and the client.

“Two or three years ago when Linda, with her serious interest in technology and technical skills, walked into my life she brought with her a new dawn of light, cheer, care and reliability.
Her approach is always professional. A deep sense of order coupled with real organisational gifts and skills, she brings generously to every task or problem. This she does with profound respect for the user’s choice. What a pleasure she is!”
