About Tricia Badillos's Experience!

Head of Accounting

Before I start discussing my testimonial working for more than a year in Pearl Lemon, let me share you first who I am. 

When it comes to payments, salaries, queries for working hours in Pearl Lemon Tricia Badillos is the one you should look for. Tricia Rozl Pimentel Badillos is the Head of Accounting dealing with various tasks related to money. I am the one setting up payroll, paying subscriptions, dealing with clients’ payments, requesting for funds to the higher management, calculate quarterly tax and VAT, self-assessment, property lease handling and anything that relates with accounting. Currently, I only have one accounts executives, Lence Benice Cayubit, that help me reconcile thousands of transactions every month and return VAT from agency, cafe, and catering to HMRC. I also seek help sometimes with Auctavia and Chane, Pearl Lemon’s VA and our intern, Jack. I also work side-by-side with Lydia Sims, the Operations Director and Catherine Reyes, the accountability manager of Pearl Lemon. When it comes to external matters, I am coordinating with a UK accountant named Varun Gutpa and his accounting team. Although checking with each of the employees is not aligned in my Key Performance Indicator, I am still messaging every employee to ask about their working hours and to detect suspicious hours. Creating invoices is one of my forte as well. When I was hired last year on 6th June, I was able to learn invoicing thru Free Agent however that month, Pearl Lemon is expanding and creating a food and beverage type of business called Pearl Lemon Cafe, Pearl Lemon Boba, and How Matcha. Because of this, I was able to act in initiatives and learn anything about Xero which is why when it comes to invoicing, account managers and sales managers are communicates to me.

Outside Pearl Lemon, I am a daughter, student, fur parent and a bread winner of the family. I am currently residing at an apartment in Marikina City which is part of the National Capital Region in the Philippines. I am a daughter of Roy Badillos, a fisherman and Liezl Badillos, a restaurant dishwasher. I am also the eldest among the children of her parents. My siblings are named Trisean Badillos and Trixie Kim Badillos. All my family is living in the province far from where I am currently residing. As of now, I am a 4th year college student hoping to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in accountancy this September. I am studying at Polytechnic University of the Philippines, one of the best universities in the Philippines. I am a big fan of Korean Pop especially groups from SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment. My favorite girl group is Blackpink and favorite boy group is EXO. Although I am really a fan, I never experienced attending concerts due to financial issues. I am also a fur parent of my dog named Tintin and when I have an extra time, you will see me watching anime especially Detective Conan, Korean dramas, and other foreign movies. I enjoy watching Marvel movies and playing mobile games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Call of Duty Mobile. I also play 3×3 rubik’s cube and listens to a wide variety of songs. When you get to finally know my personality, you will surely enjoy being my friend.
