What Does A General Accountant Do?

Accountants are responsible for communicating the financial information of an individual, business, or organization to all of its stakeholders.

This information is important in order to determine if the company is operating efficiently.

Duties

The role of an accountant includes:

  • Offering financial advice to a range of clients including large multinational corporations, smaller independent entities, and governmental bodies.
  • Auditing the financial information of a company.
  • Ensuring that the company has complied with all budgetary requirements.
  • Supervising bookkeepers with the company’s regular accounting processes such as journal entries, accounts payables and monthly account closures.
  • Performs analysis and forecasting of the financial requirements for the company.
  • Ensures that all financial transactions in the company have been correctly passed.
  • On a monthly basis, accountants are required to assist all company departments with account reconciliation processes. These processes need to be monitored carefully to ensure correct application of accounting principles and good ethical standards.
  • Compile reports, budgets, business plans, and financial statements and present them to the relevant parties.
  • Thorough analysis of company accounts and business plans.
  • Providing tax planning services that are in line with the updated tax legislation.
  • Preparation of company accounts and tax returns.
  • Monitoring the entity’s income and expenditure, and ensuring it is in line with the company’s budget.
  • Financial forecasting to ensure the company is prepared financially for the future.
  • Responsible for negotiating the terms of business deals with clients.
  • Conducting and sitting in on meetings and interviews with colleagues and clients.

Different Types of Accountants

  • Certified Public Accountant (CPA): an accounting professional who has passed the CPA exam as well as meeting the educational and work experience requirements set out by the state board of accountancy. The CPA designation gives you the knowledge, experience, expertise, and opportunities to perform duties that a non-certified accountant cannot and is highly sought after in the accounting profession. CPA’s are recognized as experts in an organization’s accounting records, taxes and financial position. This allows them to help clients plan and meet their financial goals, while remaining a trusted advisor on fiscal matters. The CPA credential is only issued in the U.S. and regulated independently by each state.
  • Forensic Accountant: dubbed as the detectives of the accounting profession, forensic accountants are responsible for analyzing financial records to ensure that they comply with the accounting standards and tax laws. They will uncover any errors, omissions, or fraudulent transactions in a company’s accounting records. Most forensic accountants are qualified as a CPA or a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE).
  • Auditor: auditors are brought into a company from an external organization to conduct an annual audit to ensure that the company’s accounting records are accurate and in line with accounting policies. An auditor will review the client’s financial statements, accounting books, and accounting systems, and assess the financial operations of the company to provide any recommendations for improvements. Auditors are generally qualified in accounting with a bachelor’s degree.
  • Management Accountant: their role is to provide information about the status of a company’s financial health in order to make decisions about the company’s future. Some of the many duties of a management accountant include planning, budgeting, financial reporting, risk management, and profitability analysis. Qualified management accountants require a bachelor’s degree in accounting and then need to pass a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam.
  • Cost Accountant: a cost accountant examines costs incurred in the company’s supply chain in order to create a profitability analysis and to prepare the company’s budgets. All costs are analyzed, including labor, materials, shipping, production, administration, etc. The analysis results are then communicated to the relevant departments in order to identify ways in which to improve financial efficiency. To become a cost accountant requires a bachelor’s degree majoring in accounting or finance well as a CPA qualification or a Certified Cost Accountant (CCA) credential.
  • Government Accountant: ensure that taxpayer’s money is allocated in a cost-effective manner and help to plan fiscal activities of governmental agencies. Government accountants are qualified with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and often hold an additional master’s degree in either accounting, taxation, business administration, or finance.
  • Investment Accountant: these accountants specialize in the fields of investment and finance. This involves expert knowledge on areas such as stocks, bonds, currencies, precious metals, and other investment vehicles. An investment accountant will typically be responsible for maintaining a client’s investments in accordance with state regulations. Educational training to become an investment accountant requires a bachelor’s degree in accounting, finance, economics or business, as well as further credentials as a CPA or a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS).
  • Chartered Accountant: this specialist accountant is responsible for implementing accounting systems and processes in a business, while also preparing the monthly financial reports, controlling the master data of the general ledger, and ensuring that the entity has complied with the state’s tax legislation. A chartered accountant is required to pass the CA exam as well as the educational and work requirements set out by the country of certification. A CA qualification is similar to a CPA qualification however, CA’s aren’t as trained in US GAAP as CPA’s are.
