Responsibilities of this role include entering and maintaining accurate and up to date information in SAGE including invoices, Credit card Statements, bank statements, supplier details, customer detail.

Accounts Assistants will create and distribute invoices for customers. SAGE has a wide number of reports which we use to manage our accounts and the wider business so learning how these reports work, and why we use each one is part of our training program, leading to running and reviewing these departmental and companywide reports with the wider team.

Learning about VAT returns and assisting in advance work to prepare the information for a VAT return and the process of how we submit these to HMRC via SAGE 50 software is included in our training and the accounts assistant will work with the Accountant to prepare these upon completion of training.

The candidate will be responsible for carrying out day to day accounts admin tasks for the company and in support of our clients.
