About Paperless VA
Paperless VA was established in January of 2013 and has provided bookkeeping, payroll and virtual assistant services to clients across the United States and beyond.
We provide complete, individualized bookkeeping, payroll and financial services to individuals and companies, specializing in professional coaches and construction contractors. All work is done remotely, using online software, so you always have access to your information in real-time, 24/7. All financial information is shared using bank-level encryption.
The goal of Paperless VA is to provide timely, accurate and professional bookkeeping services, and assist business owners to "free up time to do what you do best". Bookkeeping and financials are the ideal tasks to outsource, as they can be as hands-on (or off!) as you prefer!
We work closely with your current CPA or Tax Professional, or I'm happy to refer clients to the accountants I already work with for attestation and income tax services.
The name "Paperless VA" came about as we've worked to become a paper-free, energy efficient, environmentally sustainable business.
The Paperless VA office is powered by the sun!

"My experience with Linda Hansen as my website guide and designer was superb. Most importantly, she was focused, diligent and creative while working under a tight deadline. At the same time she stayed in close touch with me throughout the process so that I was always included in design decisions. Her knowledge of resources saved me time and energy. Bottom line, she was a delight to work with both personally and professionally."

Coaching for Leadership and Change
"I can recommend Linda with the highest praise. We have been colleagues for over 10 years. I hired her as my virtual assistant about 3 years ago when I started my consulting business. She was instrumental in both the building and creation of my business using her immense skill set in website development, social marketing, setting up and doing my books, and creating documents needed in all of the avenues I have explored in consulting and educating.
Over the years, Linda continues to impress me with her proficiency and fierce intelligence, creativity and ability to intuit situations and people. She remains calm but attacks new projects with enthusiasm and great outcome."
