We are an accounting and auditing firm of Certified Public Accountants (CPA) from the Philippines, with office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, serving international and local organizations.

 

Established in 2004 in Cambodia.

 

Rationale of Our Presence in Cambodia

 

In the last ten years, we have observed that more and more local non-government-organizations (NGO) have emerged in the field of development work in Cambodia. We feel that this is a local positive response to the international development effort which has been endeavouring toward the localisation of the rebuilding of the Cambodian society as it emerges from the social and economic challenges in its recent past.

 

It is from this observation that our team saw the need to enhance the appreciation and understanding of correct financial system and procedures among personnel of local corporate structures that are in the field of financial management, accounting and auditing. In this we see the vital significance of training and capacity building and its impact in development work in Cambodia.

 

A more specific perspective of our concern is the financial accountability and financial-management transparency of local non-government-organizations (NGO) to their beneficiaries, donors, partners and stakeholders. We believe that a synergistic financial relationship among them is vital to development work in Cambodia that all concerned parties strive to achieve with positive and enduring results. BAC – Barachina Consulting Co., Ltd., for this reason, is committed to provide the proper expertise in assisting NGOs and financial organizations in Cambodia, both local and international, achieve this purpose.
