Jericka Anne Patricio – Bookkeeper
I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science major in Accountancy. It was my greatest pride and passion, after 5 years of sacrifice, I have now received the fruits of my labour – my diploma.
In October 2017, I challenged my knowledge and luck to take the CPA board exam, but unfortunately it was not yet my time. In that moment, at the very low point of my life, I convinced myself to keep going and prove that it wasn’t the end of my career.
Luckily, right before I took the board exam, I tried to pass my application with PricewaterhouseCoopers, got an interview and a job offer. It was really my ‘plan B’, if ever I did not pass the exam, I still wanted to be part of a big accounting firm.
I started as a Tax Associate in the firm, handling Australian and Singaporean clients. For Australia, I learned about Australian taxation, mostly on Payroll tax rebates and eventually was trained in other services such as management accounting, tax and legal compliance, and bookkeeping. For Singapore, I handle risk and quality assurance, file compliance testing for PwC Singapore. For 2 years, PwC shared a lot of knowledge, experiences, and trainings with me that will give value to my future career and clients.
In 2019, I left PwC to have experience with other companies, which gave me new knowledge and training to handle New Zealand clients catering to different kinds of industries.
I am proficient with Xero software and Quickbooks. My experience with Bookkeeping is from daily reconciliation to month end reports and with the following tasks:
• Setting up bank rules
• Creating sales invoices
• Accounts payable batch payments
• Accounts receivable summary with chasing aged receivables from the clients
• Manual journals
• GST filing and preparation
• Preparation of financial reports
I have been in the industry for 3 years now, and with all the experiences, I have matured into a responsible person having traits of being detailed oriented, timeliness, and accuracy of all the jobs I have handled. Also, I have this attitude of finishing the work that I have started.
With all this, I believe that I can be a valuable asset to my existing and future clients.
