Christmas Wishes

Another year is coming to a close. A new chapter in our lives is about to be written. In a few weeks, we will review the year that has passed and prepare ourselves for the resolutions for the new year. 

Personally, I have learned a lot this year. 

I have learned about gratitude and the importance of giving back. 

In the office it is called “pagbabahagi ng mga pagpapala” (sharing the blessings). 

Watching our team develop a program of life enhancement for those in difficult circumstances fills me with pride. 

I have learned that the gift of education must be shared and the leverage in life for those who receive the gift, as well as their families, is something that can never be overvalued.  

These are the 2 areas of focus in our final newsletter for the year. 

Looking back on the year, we have grown our people. Our team has doubled in size over the past 12 months.  

We have learned to successfully navigate through the difficulties created by the pandemic. We have moved from one single office to three offices across the Clark Center precinct. We have broadened our management team to accommodate our continued growth into 2022. 

The outlook for accounting and bookkeeping staff in the Philippines continues to indicate strong growth through 2022 and beyond, especially for accounting intermediates and seniors. We have added additional education programs to accommodate the needs for our Australian clients in this area, particularly with our accounting software training courses and our Certificate of Australian Taxation. These programmes help to ensure that offshore staff can be operational with their Australian client within very short startup and onboarding timeframes. 

Debbie and I, along with our whole Philippines’ team would like to wish you and your families the very best for this holiday season and hope you will enjoy a happy a prosperous 2022.
