MANILA, Philippines – The Asian Consulting Group (ACG) reaffirmed its vision to be the Tax Hub for SMEs in the Asia-Pacific during its Annual Stockholders’ Meeting held on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at its newly-inaugurated office at The Ignacia Place in, Quezon City.
As announced by its Founding Chairman, the Philippine Tax Whiz Mon Abrea, ACG will fully implement its 2020 strategy roadmap. The roadmap includes a digital transformation, improved expert tax solutions, and the establishment of satellite offices in Albay, Vigan, Palawan, Bacolod, and Laguna.
As the Tax Hub for SMEs in the Asia-Pacific, ACG also elevates its nationwide tax roadshow to the international level as it partners with the Center for Strategic Reforms of the Philippines (CSR Philippines) through its Balik Ka, Kabayan (BKK) program. This initiative is in line with the Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) Trabaho, Negosyo, Kabuhayan (TNK) program which aims to encourage Overseas Filipino Workers to become entrepreneurs and investors in the Philippines. The international roadshow will visit Canada, Singapore, USA, Russia, Japan, and China.
In its pursuit of digital transformation, the Asian Consulting Group will be developing online platforms to automate accounting & tax systems, office management, customer service, and project management tools.
Targeting the forty million labor workforce, especially the self-employed and professionals, ACG will re-launch the TaxWhizPH Mobile App to allow more taxpayers to file and pay their taxes anytime and anywhere. The mobile app will be equipped with a tax calculator, tax calendar, capability to receive tax alerts and help monitor monthly expenses for personal budgeting.
Recognizing the mobile app as a way to help taxpayers, subscription to the TaxWhizPH mobile app is free, as proposed by celebrity entrepreneur and Careless Music label CEO James Reid – who is also one of ACG’s directors.
Joining Reid is the King of Talk and respected talent manager, Dr. Boy Abunda, who serves as the Senior PR Advisor of the Asian Consulting Group in educating and helping celebrities manage their taxes properly.
But the learning does not stop with them. For the taxpaying public, ACG will be producing the Tax Whiz Channel via YouTube to be hosted by Abunda and Reid. The channel will take a young, fresh, and interesting approach to discussing a variety of topics. Other celebrities who will be co-hosting this channel are Bea Binene, Kean Cipriano, DJ Chacha, and more.
Co-founder of Filipino food cart giant Potato Corner, Jose Magsaysay, Jr., has also joined the company, making ACG as one of the businesses under the Josebizco Holding Company.
Based on his experience in dealing with startups and businesses, he has proposed to make Tax Whiz Academy as a learning institute that offers strategic tax management for non-CPAs, certification courses for accountants with CPD units, and in-house tax modules for corporate clients.
For almost a decade now, the Asian Consulting Group has helped many taxpayers both individual and corporate from the service, manufacturing, and the wholesale & retail industries through its Citizen Tax Planning to save millions in taxes from unnecessary compromises and penalties.
Service excellence, professional integrity, and love of God and country – these are the core values that has attracted James Reid, Dr. Boy Abunda, Jose Magsaysay, Jr., and more professionals and tax experts to join the tax tech solutions firm.
With its aggressive expansion, several career opportunities are now open as ACG looks for a Managing Director, Tax Manager, Finance Manager, Business Development Manager, and any of over twenty other openings.
