Ismael, CPA") has provided high-quality financial and management services to a diverse and successful client base in Northern Philippines as an innovative and highly professional accounting and consulting firm. We serve as a valued advisor to over a thousand clients providing guidance on important operational and individual matters. Our philosophy of business is to meet our clients' needs by maintaining a personal relationship with them and by consistently delivering high-quality service to them. Providing high-quality service to our clients and our concern for the general public interest has established our firm’s reputation in our community which has enabled us to grow.
The firm is positioned in Northern Philippines to impart quality, cost-effective and practical advice to clients that include manufacturing firms, real estate companies, rural banks, money service businesses, finance companies, nonprofit organizations (like cooperatives, foundations associations, religious organizations, not for profit schools), government entities, emerging SMEs or startup firms and successful individuals. Our goal is to be the first person they call for assistance in resolving their business questions or problems.
We are accredited and authorized by the Board of Accountancy (BOA/PRC), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and National Electrification Administration (NEA). We are also an ASEAN Chartered Professional Accountant and we are also a selected auditor for Bread for the World-funded projects.
Much of our internal work is centered on changes designed to position ourselves to drive value and enhanced services.
We are a dynamic and innovative professional service firm providing accounting, advisory, and auditing services that enable our clients to succeed in a competitive environment. We are highly regarded for our expertise in certain industries and service niches. We are recognized for our commitment to excellence in quality, value, and personal responsiveness of the services we offer our clients as their primary business advisers.
Our purpose is to glorify God, as we seek to use the talents He has given to us to help our clients find solutions to their problems and help them build for the future.
In today’s environment, people want help with decisions and they want to rely on someone they trust. The foundation of our firm is providing trusted and valued business advice that will help our clients succeed. We are committed to building long-term and respected business relationships. As a firm, we take this commitment very seriously and strive to develop and nurture relationships.
We recognize in advance that we will not have all of the expertise in-house to handle all of our clients’ needs, so we will maintain relationships with other skilled professionals whose areas of specialization complement our own, and whose commitment to quality and service is identical to our own.
