The 13th-Month Pay Bonus... What is it?
The 13th-month pay bonus is an end of the year incentive Philippine employees receive from their employers. It is equal to a month’s salary for employees who have worked for a year or more in the company or a prorated amount for those who have less than a year’s tenure.
Is it compulsory?
A 13th-month pay bonus is not necessarily mandatory for virtual assistants and is only mandated upon local employers in the Philippines.
However, although it isn’t required, many entrepreneurs give a 13th-month pay bonus to reward and motivate their virtual assistants and it is one of the key bonuses we implore our clients to honour when working with virtual assistants.

Let’s go through some common FAQs together.
WHAT DOES A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT DO?The role of a ‘Virtual Assistant’ is exactly that: working to assist someone – typically a small business owner – but virtually (i.e. remotely). So that means we all work remotely and we all do work that has a focus on helping our clients better leverage their own time, by delegating what they can to you as their VA. A Virtual Assistant will usually have a broad range of skills, often built from a background in administration, executive assistance, project management, day-to-day marketing support and similar such “hands on” roles that keep businesses moving forward.

WHY WORK ENVIRONMENT DO I NEED TO WORK FROM?You must have access to your own computer, with the Microsoft Office suite, and any other relevant software you need to reasonably work as a Virtual Assistant installed. That means: Your computer should be reliable and reasonably new so that you can efficiently carry out the tasks required of you. You must have an anti-virus system operating on your computer. The computer must be connected to reliable broadband Internet (sufficient speed to use video-calling software such as Skype). For data security, confidentiality and safeguarding reasons, this computer must not be shared with anyone else in your household and access must be protected by a password, security device or pin number. You must also be able to work alone in a quiet environment free from distractions, at a desk (the dining table soon becomes uncomfortable!).
