DBA Advisory has chosen to locate operations in the Philippines to better serve their diverse client base. DBA Global Shared Services, Inc. (DBA), the outsourcing arm of DBA Advisory, is a Philippine registered corporation focused on providing innovative professional outsourcing solutions to Australia’s financial services sector.
Established in the Philippines in 2013, DBA provides high-end quality outsourced services and solutions, combining large-scale utilization of available technological resources and the excellent skills of their people. What started as a seven-man team in a small office in Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) quickly grew to 35 employees in its first year. After six years in the industry, DBA now employs 250 professionals with offices in Clark, Bataan, and Tarlac.
“The country has, perhaps, the best pool of highly skilled personnel in the field of accounting, law and IT that you can find anywhere in the world. The Filipino workforce is so committed and culturally always eager to help.”DBA CEO Darlow Parazo
DBA is committed not only to providing quality outsourced services to their clients, but also to offer job opportunities to the vast pool of local talents, so professionals won’t have to move to the metro for work. This is the main driving force for DBA’s decision to set up offices in the provinces. The company also offers competitive salaries and benefits, comparable to other Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies in Metro Manila, and provides long-term career paths to their employees, so they can work close to home.
By providing jobs to local talents, DBA was able to access multi-disciplinary and multi-industry professionals and expand their services. Their SMSF Division has audited 3,500 SMSFs the past year. The Self-managed Super Fund (SMSF) is the retirement savings structure for Australians, similar to the Pension Fund provided by the Social Security System (SSS) in the Philippines. DBA’s Financial Planning Division can produce more than 1,500 Records of Advice (ROAs), Statements of Advice (SOAs) and Review documents a year, while their Business Services Division serves over 100 services firms across the globe. Their Creative Team has already designed various websites and provided branding services to a number of clients.
