This Accountant is working for a legal organisation based in Merseyside.
The ideal candidate will be an Accountant with legal sector experience.
The role itself will involve:
• Management of the day-to-day finances of the business including the supervision of the daily reconciliation of the Office and Client Account balances. Investigation into any anomalies that may be identified.
• Preparation of Annual targets/budgets/forecasts, presentation of the same to the Board for approval and distribution of Targets to Heads of Department and on to Fee Earners where required.
• Preparation of regular Management Information and the presentation of the same to the Board. This includes the monitoring and Analytical Review of financial results and KPI’s against targets/budgets/forecasts.
• Review the Performance of Departments and Individual Fee Earners against Target and discussion of the same with Management/Fee Earners to identify potential trends or areas of improvement. Adjustment of Targets/Budgets/Forecasts and re-presentation to the Board where required.
• Preparation of the Quarterly VAT Returns, including submission of the same to HMRC and the prompt payment of the arising Tax Liability.
The role would suit an accountant who has risen through the ranks in the legal profession maybe starting as a legal cashier and working there way upwards. A formal accountancy qualification is less important than the actual legal sector experience.
