Our Story

Explore The Outsourced Accountant’s journey from a specialized service provider to becoming TOA Global, the global accounting staffing solution it is today.

The First Signs of TOA Global

The concept of TOA Global emerged during a board retreat in the Philippines as part of Nick Sinclair’s involvement with the Entrepreneurs Organization. It was during this retreat that he observed the back-office operations of a fellow member’s business while experiencing his own struggles with capacity. This led Nick to create our first offshore team in the Philippines to support the Australian business.

From Spare Office Space to Rapid Expansion

Things began to scale after Nick joined a road show called “Capitalizing on the Cloud” where he was invited to share his outsourcing experiences. During the tour, several firms approached Nick, expressing interest in using his spare office space in the Philippines. This marked the inception of My Cloud People Inc., which initially started with just 20 seats but quickly expanded to accommodate 90 offshore accounting roles. We grew from 30 to 400 seats in about three years.

Focusing on Accountants: A Key Differentiator

Having run his own accounting and financial planning business, Nick recognized the unique needs of the accounting industry and wanted to leverage the expertise and resources gained to provide professional staffing solutions to accountants and accounting firms, empowering them to enhance their services and streamline operations.

We have dedicated our efforts to providing for these needs when it comes to building global teams. From office quality and locations to the technology employed, everything has been designed with the lens of clients and staff, who are professionals seeking a conducive environment for success.

From The Outsourced Accountant to TOA Global

The exclusivity in dealing solely with accounting firms set the business apart and the name needed to showcase this, and in 2015 we became The Outsourced Accountant.

This name made it clear to our potential clients that we were their outsourced accounting solution. As we expanded this developed into TOA (The Outsourced Accountant) Global as we began to offer more offshore roles that accounting firms require and to multiple nations as demand increased. Our name tells the story of our evolution, from a specialized service provider to a global accounting staffing solution.

Challenges and Growth

Managing TOA Global’s growth came with its own set of challenges. Finding and retaining the right people who could scale with the company’s expansion was crucial. Not all employees were suited for their roles in a larger, globally expanding organization. It became evident that continuous development and growth were essential to keep our team aligned with the evolving needs of the company, our clients and staff. As such, learning and development has become an essential element of our approach. In addition, what worked for a company of 650 was not going to take us forward. Digitization of the business was the next essential step towards ongoing success and sustainability.

The Power of Community and In-Person Engagement

In addition to training, we believe in fostering a sense of community among our clients and team members. We actively engage in the markets we serve, attending events, conferences, and being present in the community. This commitment to in-person engagement is distinctive and helps build meaningful relationships. We’ve even expanded our physical presence, with 9 offices globally: in Fort Worth (Texas), the Gold Coast (Australia), four cities in the Philippines and one in Cape Town (South Africa). We’re not a remote service provider; we’re actively part of the community and market with our clients.

Staff Set up for Success

Our success hinges on investing in our team’s skills. We believe in their value and have created a registered training organization that provides international certificates. This program bridges skill gaps, enabling them to serve clients worldwide. Our pioneering seven-week Accelerator Program equips accountants for tasks in the U.S. and Australia. Our 3,700+ team members access professional development plans, boasting international certifications. We don’t stop at certificates; we ensure our team members can use those qualifications in the countries they work in.

Company Timeline Update 2023

Empowering Through Digital Transformation

Digitizing the business has allowed us to provide comprehensive and tailored support to our clients and team members. Over five years, we built something that no one else in the industry has at this level. Our people management platforms centralize communications, providing access to important updates, team training progress, 24/6 assistance through live chat, and time management systems.

At TOA Global, we believe that going digital is about helping our clients and team members get and stay ahead, making our offshore accounting and bookkeeping services much more efficient and effective.
