Joined Sep 26 2009
I am an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA - UK) member with a permanent resident visa and possess working experience from Singapore and Malaysia. I also have excellent communication skills in English with an IELTS score of 7.5 from a possible 9.0. My ACCA qualification was assessed by Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (ICAA) as equivalent to an Australian Bachelor degree. I can furnish the letter from ICAA on this upon request.
I have solid experience preparing accounts and producing financial statements, including cash flow statement in my previous roles on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis. These are usually prepared in our customised ERP system called OptimalOne which includes Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, General Ledger and related journal entries and adjustments. I applied International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) in arriving at the reports, a standard which Australia is converging towards. My previous company sourced funding internationally as such, it was important that the reports prepared met the highest accounting and financial standards.
Besides this, one of my critical functions was to monitor and analyse business results on a monthly basis against budget and forecast as well as seasonal trends. These forecasts are constantly updated and improved on a quarterly basis in order to reflect a relevant set of targets instead of plain financial numbers. Methods such as Return on Investment (ROI) and Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) are constantly used to gauge the results of the respective business units. Forecast are usually prepared on an individual business unit basis and aggregated to form the company’s overall annual forecast and budget.
Syarikat Borcos Shipping Sdn. Bhd. is one of the largest marine offshore support companies in the oil and gas industry in Malaysia and South-East Asia and valued at AUD110 million. This company was constantly engaged in M & A activities which provided me with opportunities to participate in special projects and business process improvement tasks as well constantly develop my analytical skills and use financial models such as Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) and Net Present Value (NPV) analysis.
I hope I have the opportunity to secure a job in accountancy and finance that can utilize my experience above. Thank you.
