Outsource real estate accounts assistants to the Philippines


What is an outsourced real estate accounts assistant?

The accounting tasks performed within a real estate business can be quite extensive especially in relation to trust accounts, however there is opportunity to outsource much of this work to someone external to your agency. This person can be located offshore in places such as the Philippines but will still work very closely with your onshore team.

An offshore accounts assistant can help both your sales and property management team with the following tasks, plus many more:

  • Maintaining trust accounts
  • Bank reconciliations
  • Bond reconciliations
  • Tenant and landlord invoicing
  • Pay runs for utilities, trades and rates
  • Accounts receivable and payable
  • Reporting
  • Payroll processing
  • BAS and tax preparation
  • Property management accounts
  • Managing late payments, arrears and defaults
  • Strata management accounting.


Why do real estate agents outsource accounts assistance offshore?

With daily reconciliations required for trust accounts, and a huge number of other tasks involved with accounts receivable and payable, many real estate agents are sharing their accounting load with an offshore resource. The tasks require a very high level of attention to detail and a thorough understanding of accounting knowledge which is perfectly suited to the professional and qualified talent that’s available in the Philippines.

Outsourcing your repetitive, transactional accounting tasks to an offshore accounts assistant will allow your sales team and property managers to focus on growing your business rather than chasing payments. Your accountant will also be more focused on business strategy and managing higher level accounting requirements. As a business owner, you’ll have accounting information that’s correct and up to date, ensuring that any late or defaulting payments are easily managed before they become major issues.

What other real estate job roles can be outsourced?

In addition to an accounting assistant, many other jobs within your real estate agency can be fulfilled by an offshore team member, including:
