Outsourcing accounts payable
services to the Philippines


What is an outsourced accounts payable service?

Outsourcing of the accounts payable function within your accounts department involves sending tasks such as checking, coding and processing invoices for payment, to a staff member or team of staff outside of your organisation. It can cover all tasks related to the management and paying of creditors and this type of work is often sent to overseas locations like the Philippines.

No matter how big your organisation is, sending simple, transactional tasks involved with accounts payable, can allow your local team to focus on more complex tasks, and jobs that will be of more value and impact to your business growth and development.

It’s also a cost effective alternative to employing locally, giving your accounts team the support they need at a reduced cost. An offshore accounts payable officer can complete a number of tasks including but not limited to:

  • Checking invoice accuracy
  • Inputting and coding invoices correctly
  • Matching invoices and purchase orders
  • Processing and paying invoices
  • Following internal payment approval processes
  • Scheduling payment runs
  • Managing creditor enquiries for payment
  • Processing employee expense claims
  • Performing reconciliations
  • Monthly reporting
  • Working with required accounting software such as MYOB, Xero or Quickbooks.

Why do businesses outsource accounts payable services offshore?

Sending accounts payable work to offshore staff allows businesses to focus on more complex requirements within their organisation. It also ensures that creditor payments are accurate and up-to-date so that you know exactly what your financial position looks like.

And because these tasks are not considered to be core to your business and are back-office in nature, they can be completed easily by an offshore staff member. What’s more, without the distractions of your local office, work is often more accurate and efficient.

This leaves your local team to focus on your core business processes and the more complex accounting tasks that involve analysis and deep business understanding and as a result, is likely to lead to a more satisfied employee. It will also give them the time to strategise about ways to improve and grow your business.

What are the benefits of outsourcing accounts payable offshore?

Key benefits associated with outsourcing accounts payable services to the Philippines include:

  • Efficiency increase

  • Cost Saving

    By hiring an outsourced team to assist your onshore departments with these accounts payable tasks for a fraction of the price, your organisation's overheads and staff costs will dramatically decrease, by up to 70%.

  • Increased employee satisfaction

  • Business growth

    By enabling additional capabilities through your offshore team, you will be able to provide your local employees with the capacity to take on more work. This in turn will lead to sustainable business growth.
