How to Hire a Filipino Bookkeeper? – Practical Advice

Bookkeeping is the process of recording and organizing a business’s financial transactions. It is also one of those routine and boring jobs that you as a business owner, don’t have to do yourself.

You’d be doing yourself a disservice if you’re still the one doing the bookkeeping. Hiring a Filipino bookkeeper is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your business. Bookkeeping is such a menial job. You don’t have to do it. You’re the CEO of your own business! Find someone else to do it and do it for a very affordable rate.

Finding someone in the Philippines to do your bookkeeping for you is so easy! Here are 7 steps to do it:

  1. Determine exactly what you’re looking for
  2. Head on to and browse resumes
  3. Post a job on
  4. Interview applicants through email
  5. Narrow down candidates through a test
  6. Negotiate terms
  7. Give someone a job

Easy, right? Watch the video as I talk about these steps in detail and you’ll be on your way to find the bookkeeper that’s the right fit for you.

Online Filipino Specialists — I call them specialists because they specialize in doing something, in this case, bookkeeping — can be hired to do anything and everything in your business. They aren’t simply VAs anymore because anything that can be done online or on the can be done by a Filipino specialist.
