Nearshoring a
Virtual Assistant

Nearshore Virtual Assistance

What is Nearshoring?

Nearshoring is the practice of hiring qualified professionals in a nearby or border country. In this practice, employees are hired and located through a third-party in a nearby country, and the third-party acts as an Employer of Record.

How can Nearshoring help my business?

Nearshoring allows you to tap into global talent without the high expenses associated with hiring in the United States. Essentially, you can delegate a lot of tasks to virtual assistants located in a nearby country and save up to 70% in salaries. As we say, it’s a world of resources at a fraction of the cost!

Offshoring vs Nearshoring

Traditional outsourcing practices involve delegating tasks to people located in countries usually overseas. For example, many companies in the U.S. resort to hiring virtual assistants in the Philippines in hopes of optimizing costs. Hiring overseas often involves a lot more disadvantages than one realizes such as working in a completely opposite schedule as the VA, receiving delayed responses, and lack of attention because the VA is working for many clients, just to name a few. Additionally, cultural differences and language barriers, as well as infrastructure deficiencies can lead to inefficient communication and workflow.

On the other hand, delegating tasks to a virtual assistant in a neighboring country – nearshoring – can significantly reduce the issues associated with offshoring and still help optimize costs.







Overseas - the VA is working the opposite schedule as yours.
VAs are in your same time zone, allowing for closeness and ease in communication; they can even visit your HQ!
Labor is so cheap - the VA is usually working with more than one client without your knowledge.
All our VAs work for you, our client, exclusively.
VAs get no "legal" benefits nor security, leading to a high turnover!
VAs receive all benefits required by law and additional benefits for being a part of the Cápita Works family!
Since the VA is overseas, they tend to not be familiar with the culture in the US.
Due to the proximity of countries, there are few cultural differences to worry about.
Risk of tax/legal non-compliance (new regulations, permanent establishment, etc.).
You're working with an established US entity that is 100% compliant in both countries.
It's called outsourcing... you'll eventually suffer the effects of the "vanishing VA".
It's called insourcing... you have full control over a highly accountable full-time employee that works exclusively for you.

What tasks can I Nearshore?

Essentially, anything! Think of your pain points and where you need help and those are the tasks you can delegate to nearshoring. Once you have this list, you’ll see exactly why a virtual assistant could help you.
