Accountant Courses

An Accountant keeps financial records and processes financial accounts. You might be employed by a business or organisation to manage their financial systems or you might have your own business where you look after the accounts of individual clients. Accountants may specialise in a particular area such as taxation or auditing or you might provide general accounting services. This might include reconciling accounts, checking income and expenditure and preparing financial reports.

An Accountant needs to be good with numbers and have excellent attention to detail. You’ll need be organised and be able to manage several tasks at once. Accountants use a range of software systems to manage financial accounts so you’ll need the technical skills to input information and generate reports. You may be working as part of a larger team so communication skills are essential.
