Hi! I'm Jordan.
I'm the founder of Cloud Accountant Staffing.
Why do accounting firms trust CAS to help build their offshore teams?
I'm also the owner of AccountedFor, a cloud based accounting firm. We are a small team of 14, including 9 offshore accountants in the Philippines.
Like most firm owners, I struggled to find onshore accountants for my team. After having four consecutive offers rejected in 2020, I was burned out on hiring. That's when I turned to offshore staffing companies for help. Although my experience with staffing companies was not a major success, I quickly realized there was something there.
So I started building my own offshore hiring pipeline in early 2021. Now in 2023, my accounting firm has 9 full timers in the Philippines.
The light bulb went off and CAS was born. Now I'm solving accounting firm owners biggest headaches... Finding quality people for their teams.

Yes, although we primarily supply firms with full time team members. Part time is a 20 hour weekly commitment. Seasonal is a two month minimum commitment.
Can I cancel at anytime?
We require a two month minimum commitment. We want firms to embrace their new team member culturally during onboarding to ensure the best chance for success.
Am I getting a quality accountant?
Yes. You can expect to get the same attitude, effort, and base knowledge that you would from an onshore accountant. It is your responsibility to train your team member just like you would for an onshore hire.
How well does my team member speak English?
We pre screen candidates based on their english proficiency and accounting knowledge and send you the results prior to scheduling a video conference interview with you and the candidate.
What about the differences in time zones?
We have staff that are flexible to work with your local time zone. If you'd rather your staff work while you sleep, we have staff that will work in line with their time zone.
How quickly can you find someone for my firm?
Filipino culture it is expected to provide one months notice to an employer before leaving. We tell firms to expect 6 weeks from making an offer to actual start date. Often times we have candidates available sooner.
