Grow your accounting firm with offshore
Specialised positions like certified forensic accountant, are often the hardest ones to fill, due to a shortage in skills. Not just in Australia and New Zealand, but many other developed countries.
The Australian Department of Jobs and Small Business reported a continued shortage in Accounting professionals from 2017 to 2018. On average, 14 accountants applied for one job opening, but the majority of them were considered unsuitable.
This is because for roles like these, employers like you often require applicants with at least two or more years of experience. Particularly when looking for a certified forensic accountant or trust accountant.

Lower employment costs for certified forensic accountants
A certified forensic accountant is an in-demand staffing role that commands a high market price. The average salary for a Forensic Accountant in Australia is AU$79,548 but can reach as high as A$100,000 for a financial forensic investigator. Particularly those required for court proceedings or litigation. Filipino Forensic accountants and auditors with the same skills and even more experience will cost you less than half that amount.
Cultural compatibility is the easy part. Filipinos are Westernised and speak near-native level English. They are highly proficient in the language, and have a 97% literacy rate. But more importantly, Filipino forensic tax accountants are well-versed in Australian taxation laws, business regulations, as well as software and tools required for the job.
In the last decade, large Australian accounting firms have set up subsidiaries in the Philippines and trained Filipino accountants on software like MYOB, Xero and others. The two-hour time difference is easily covered by offshore staff, allowing them and your local team to work the same business hours. Your Filipino certified forensic accountant will even have an Australian number to receive and place calls without international charges.
By partnering with Staff Domain, your business will have access to highly skilled, trained, and experienced certified forensic accountants just like the big players in the industry. You’ll have competent, loyal, and hardworking employees providing an excellent forensic accounting service at an affordable rate.

Regardless of your circumstance, by turning to an accounts payable outsourcing solution, you’re going to see positive change in your business.
By offshoring small business bookkeeping tasks like accounts payables, you can have a talented employee focusing full time on your cash flow. Don’t just pay bills, have them planned out, supplier relationships effectively managed and your money trail clear, and clean.
For a small to medium accounting firm or a department of a similar size – payroll is a big task and often a drain on accounting staff. Whether that be managing timesheets, the preparation of pay slips, group certificates, salary payments, super management or leave accruals.
All payroll tasks can be conducted by a fulltime offshore payroll employee that you choose, and you manage.
