Day in the Life of an Accountant
VIVID’s accountant Saar Zachary gave a summary of what his department and he does on a daily basis, as well as advice for future accountants. The accountants are keeping and maintaining all of the companies cash receivables (journals). They manage all of the expenses such as utilities and make sure we are paying our taxes. They work closely with marketing and sales to make sure all payments are made and the ads are created/placed. They also make sure our clients are being emailed to ensure our company’s customer service and satisfaction is outstanding.
Accounting will also work with the website manager to make sure the order form responses and the payments are aligned. Once a month they create a department report to bring the rest of the team up to speed about the company’s financial situation. This includes adjustments to our projections, and comparing it to our actual. They report about our expenses, payroll, revenues and any profit that the company has made. Advise Saar would give to our future accountants is: “Making sure that the journals are always updated, and communication with other departments, just because of the way our business is set up having accounting and sales working together increases productivity”
