Accountants play a vital role in a business. They are responsible for bookkeeping, interpreting financial records and other finance-related tasks. If done inaccurately, there could be consequences making getting the right person for the job. Let us see the technical skills and experience aspect. 

Career structure

The Australian and Filipino accountants’ career structure is similar. It can start from a Junior Accountant moving into an Accountant or specialist roles like Financial Accountant or Management Accountant to more senior roles or even executive positions. You may be thinking, how come it is similar? The Western influence within the Filipino culture and the Philippines being a colonised country. Filipino accountants are professional, attention-to-detail and skilled problem solvers. Also, with top-notch analytic and communication skills, Filipino accountants are on par with their Australian counterparts.


Another difference between the Australian and Filipino accountants is the comparable salary. A Filipino accountant’s salary rate is considerably lower than an Australian accountant.
