Derek is joined again by Arnold San Miguel and they will briefly discuss Finance and Accounting Outsourcing.


  • Every business needs finance and accounting. Every business needs their books maintained. And it’s actually something that every business would prefer to ignore since this isn’t one of their core activities.
  • It’s expensive to get qualified accountants typically in their own countries.
  • There are over 500,000 university graduates in the Philippines per year and out of that number there are 85,000 accounting graduates per year coming out of Philippine universities.
  • Reason for outsourcing your FAO
  1. To lower costs.
  2. Second would be increased scalability and flexibility.
  3. Another reason for outsourcing FAO is to standardise your finance and accounting functions.
  4. The fourth reason is improved processes.
  5. Access to talent and technology.
  • What companies are outsourcing in terms or FAO
  1. Payroll – 33%
  2. Accounts Payable – 23%
  3. Transactional Purchasing – 19%

Key Points
