We are looking for someone who already has a background working in a similar environment, preferably with 2 - 3 years' experience. The person will need to assist the firm's existing partners and managers in the preparation of annual accounts and tax returns and will also be able to work independently carrying out client bookkeeping services toward the completion of VAT Returns.

Main duties:

Bookkeeping and VAT

  • Accurate data inputting of client source records into a bookkeeping software system.
  • Reconciling the key control data in the bookkeeping software with original documents.
  • Production of VAT Returns from a varied range of data.
