Company Accountant Jobs
Company accountant jobs are among the most numerous in the UK economy, which if Margaret Thatcher was correct and we are indeed a nation of shopkeepers, will not come as a surprise to anybody.
Any enterprise, once it starts making sales and paying suppliers, needs an individual to perform the tasks associated with company accountant jobs, which, at its most basic level includes banking, cash reconciliations and payments, and ensuring that the company complies with statutory returns such as corporation tax, VAT and dealings with the Inland Revenue.
With the smallest of companies, company accountant jobs may be performed by the director, a relative of the director, or even the company’s firm of accountants. However once the business starts to grow, it is essential that a suitably experienced individual is brought in to maintain control over cash, assets and to give guidance to the directors. Individuals who perform accountancy jobs generally have had significant experience in small to medium companies, single managed enterprises or owner managed businesses, or have performed accountant jobs for a number of clients, if they have been trained in an accounting practice, be it certified or chartered.
As businesses grow and look to expand their horizons, the basics of company accounting still need to be adhered to, to ensure financial probity, and it is useful for any organisation to retain an individual who has performed a company accountant job previously. There have been far too many examples over recent years where the basic tenets of the duties of the company accountant have been overlooked or ignored.
