24Task is a virtual assistant company specializing in providing dedicated virtual assistants to small and medium-sized businesses all over the world.
The company is based in the Philippines, with its headquarters located in Daet, Bicol Region. When working with 24Task’s assistants you can specify if you want them to work in their offices, or from their own homes (for a discounted hourly rate).
The company started operations in 2014. There isn’t any publicly listed information on the founders or the board behind the company, but their goals are clearly defined:
“To provide reliable and affordable support in every aspect of the business.”
They definitely come in as one of the more affordable VA companies in the Philippines with hourly rates as low as $3.90.
24Task don’t give away much about their vetting process of the skills and experience of their assistants, but they do offer a free trial so you can “try before you buy”.
You have the option to choose if your assistant will be working from their offices or at home, as well as the number of years’ experience they have. From there you will be assigned an assistant and can communicate directly with them.
How 24Task Works
To get started, sign up for the 10-hour free trial and provide some details about your business and what you’re looking for in a virtual assistant. A member of their team will contact you within 24 hours via email or SMS.
They will give you the details of their best-suited VA and you can chat with them via Skype or email. If you’re happy they have the skills to carry out the work, you’ll be sending them you can start sending them tasks right away.
At the end of each week, you’ll be sent an invoice for the number of hours your assistant has worked.
24Task list well in excess of 100 different services and skillsets of their assistants on their site. It’s fair to say that if you have tasks that can be communicated and completed remotely, they want your business.
To give you an idea of the general services they offer, they group them under the following headings:
- Customer Service
- Admin Support
- Video and Animation
- Website Development
- Mobile Development
Plans and Pricing
24Task currently have three hourly plans:
- Startup – 40 hours for $256 per month ($6.90 per hour)
- Part-Time – 80 hours for $472 per month ($5.90 per hour)
- Full-Time – 160 hours for $784 per month ($4.90 per hour)
Those rates are based on a VA working from their offices with 1-3 years’ experience. You can choose an assistant based from home and cut $1 off the hourly rate across the board. Likewise, you can opt for an assistant with 4-6 years’ experience and add $1 per hour across the board.
They have an hourly rate calculator on their site with a sliding scale if you want to buy a specific number of hours. The lowest rate you’ll pay is $3.90 if you commit to 160+ hours a month for a home-based VA with 1-3 years’ experience. That’s a very competitive rate, even for the Philippines.
24Task offers a 10-hour free trial, so I’d recommend taking advantage of that if you want to try their services before committing to a plan.
If you want to get quotes with other virtual assistant companies in the Philippines before making a decision, I recommend starting with OnlineJobs.ph and Task Bullet.
OnlineJobs.ph operates a job board where you can post your job and screen for qualified candidates. They also have a done-for-you recruiting service. Task Bullet operates on an hourly rate model like 24Task, but instead of a monthly membership, you buy “buckets” of hours and can choose to renew — or not — when they run out.

Writers have often been unpaid despite working for clients through the app. #24task.com lies that they pay after 10-15 days yet they can take a year or two or even never pay you for services rendered. As a former freelancer for #24task I will publish all the papers I wrote because I never got paid for the services. The papers thus belong to me. Sorry to #24task clients that will lose their grade or degrees because of this. I am available on email using [blocked] for any queries regarding this. I have proof of their fake promises to pay spanning a year now.
I’ve been working with a VA from 24task for around 3 months, and she has been great. Cindy* works 20 hours/week for me and my wife. For the first couple of months, I asked her to focus solely on helping my wife with her job search. Cindy looked up jobs, applied on behalf of my wife, responded to emails, set up interviews, and more. Once my wife got a job, I’ve been transitioning Cindy into doing more everyday tasks, and though there’s a lot of set-up work involved on my end to give her the instructions and access she needs, the whole experience has been excellent. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Cindy.

I’ve been working with my virtual assistant from 24task for almost a year now. For an affordable price, I have a professional assistant who truly loves what he do. It is really amazing to have a virtual assistant who values work even from a far.
I’ve been using 24task for several months now and I don’t have any problem with my VAs so far. My experience working with them is excellent and all I can say is that I am very satisfied with their service. My VAs are amazingly great! They are effective and efficient remote workers. I’ve already recommended this service to my friends and would love to leave this comment so whoever reads it would also try this amazing service. They give free trials too!
