Accountant Jobs

People in accountant jobs are responsible for keeping track of financial data for business and organizations, for reporting, verification, taxation, and decision-making purposes. Tax accounting jobs focus on the preparation and filing of tax documents for businesses and organizations, as well as making sure that taxes are paid. Management accounting jobs involve analyzing and preparing financial data to assist managers with making decisions and guiding organizational policies. People in financial accounting jobs maintain and update balance sheets and account records, reconciling revenues and expenses to eliminate inaccuracies and waste in the handling of company funds. Auditing jobs are concerned with analysis and oversight of business processes, double-checking accounting techniques and practices to identify potential sources of error or possible fraudulent activity in order to catch problems before they become significant enough to negatively affect the organization, clients, or shareholders. Additional accounting specializations, such as open-book accounting, academic accounting, and others, are available in environments and industries with specialized accounting requirements.

People in accounting jobs typically work in office environments, typically in close proximity to other aspects of the organization in order to facilitate communication and access to relevant data. Accountants may also work with accounting firms, which handle the accounting needs of other businesses. Modern accounting relies heavily on software analysis and communication tools, with the result that much of an accountant’s work will be done using computers.
