This website is a brainchild of a CPA who is an accounting manager, an entrepreneur, and a licensed financial advisor, simultaneously. Outside office hours, you can meet up with Mag at any coffee shop and she will be more willing to help you out with your tax calculations, financial statements, searching for the best insurance policy, and what’s, perhaps, your next business move.
An accelerated, consistent honor student since elementary, and an active competitor in school events, she valued education deeply and took each step at a time towards attaining her dreams. Despite successive exams, she concurrently worked as a bookkeeper to augment her expenses. Every semester, she does her best in order to become a Dean’s Lister and be exempted from paying the tuition fees. Through this, the University often chooses her to represent the school in national competitions. She graduated as cum laude and amongst all the alumni, she was the only one who was awarded the annual Philippine Association of Collegiate Schools of Business Award.
She passed the CPA licensure exams on October 2012 and immediately worked as Accountant in Petron where she obtained sufficient knowledge in MS Office programs and SAP. After a year, she was promoted as Tax Accountant in the same company and experienced firsthand how to be audited by the Bureau of Internal Revenue.
To enhance her skills further, she worked as an Auditor of SGV & Co., a member Firm of Ernst & Young, where she audited local and foreign companies. This led her to better appreciate auditing theory, the EY auditing tool (EY GAM), IAS, IFRS, and US GAAP.
Given the ample resources, she will soon take CFA exams and Master’s Degree in order to remain sharp in the profession and an asset to the company she works for.
