Know Us


For over a decade, Christopher U. 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 certified public accountant and consulting firm. Ismael CPA serves 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 close, 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, private businesses, rural banks, 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 a question or a problem.

To serve our clients’ needs to the full, the firm has complied with the requirements of the new Accountancy Act of 2004 which prescribes accreditation of Accounting Firms in order to practice accountancy in the Philippines. The firm is the first firm in the Northern Philippines to complete its accreditation requirements. We are accredited and authorized by the Board of Accountancy (BOA/PRC), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), THE Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Insurance Commission (IC), and National Electrification Administration (NEA). We have also rendered services to agencies like the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) and the Department of Agriculture (CHARMP projects).

Positioning Ismael CPA for the future 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 accounting firm providing accounting and auditing services that enable our clients to succeed in a competitive environment.

As a professional service provider 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 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 believe these relationships can best be maintained person-to-person within a small, one office CPA firm. 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.


Versatile, respected management professional with high standards of integrity. Adept at sizing up situations, analyzing facts, and developing alternative courses of action in order to increase productivity. Form quality liaisons and relationships easily, and instill a high level of confidence at all levels.
