Are you at a place in your career where getting an accounting job seems nearly impossible?
Do you work in an accounting department but lack exposure in certain accounting areas?
Reality is, employers, want highly skilled accountants who can perform various tasks as expected.
Look at it this way……
You know all the team players of a certain sport, analytics surrounding it and can even predict whether the team wins or not but does this make you an expert at this sport?
Not entirely. Why? You just have the knowledge, not the skills. The big question here is can you play the sport?
The same applies to your accounting career. You cannot be an accountant just by name or theory, you need to practice it and upgrade your skills practically, to excel in your career.
Here are some 3 key skills to help you steer your accounting career in the right direction;
1. Filing Taxes
A career in Tax Accounting? If you are looking to work as a payroll specialist in the corporate industry then filing KRA Taxes and making statutory deductions like NHIF, NSSF, HELB etc. will form a better part of your expected duties. Employers want someone who can promptly deliver based on set timelines, standards and regulations.
2. QuickBooks Usage
Are you conversant with the latest version of QuickBooks being used in most Kenyan organisations? In this digital era, you have to keep up with all the technological advancements or be left behind!
Stop being that analogue accountant and aspire to be that digital accountant who strives to get their tasks handled within a short time. Are you ready? See how it can be done in just 5 days!
Are you conversant with I-Tax? Can you file PAYE, VAT, end year financial reports among others?
This is an essential part of accounting. With knowledge in I-Tax, you can easily file end year company results among others.
What should this tell you? That as an accountant this goes beyond arithmetic accuracy you need to have a keen eye.
Don’t just be an accountant by name be the skilled accountant every company or business needs.
