The more detailed services completed by the MA are that of carrying out bookkeeping work, posting supplier invoices, credit notes and pre-coded expenses forms (either directly to the accounting software or via our online accounting portal), preparation of management reports (including but not limited to profit and loss account, balance sheet, management letter commentary and supporting schedules), preparation of VAT returns, EC sales lists, Intrastat returns, CIS reporting and preparation of supporting files in relation to these, the resolution of any review points raised by managers as part of our quality control process, and provision of these deliverables in an accurate and timely way.
The role requires significant interaction with the team and with client staff. In the Global Services team there will be interaction with Financial Administrators who may work on the same clients and Client Managers who will review the work completed before it is delivered to clients. A good MA will communicate with these individuals on a regular basis to be sure that information is shared but will take personal responsibility for the work they are completing rather than rely on these other individuals. Contacts at the client will range from purchase ledger clerks to CFOs. As such the Management Accountant will need to be confident in communicating with people at all levels. This communication may be written, in which case it would need to be clear and concise as a number of our clients do not have English as a first language, but should wherever possible be verbal so individuals need to be confident dealing with the clients over the phone.
Each MA is assigned a portfolio of work. However it is inevitable there will be times when clients will be demanding in their requirements and as a client focused business we will always try and react to this. An MA should be able to deal with such requirements on their own portfolio in a timely manner, identify and highlight when they need assistance and be prepared to assist others throughout the firm.
