An associate accountant is primarily responsible for managing the accounts payable processes of the company, including payments on vendor invoices, audits and requests for funds from other departments of the company, and recordkeeping pertaining to accounts; these records can include reconciliation of accounts, journal entries, receipts, and lockbox logs. Additionally, associate accountants review reports from other employees to ensure that they are accurate and complete. Associate accountants generally work full time in an office environment and are not required to travel. Associate accountants often report directly to a general accountant, and they may be required to perform additional tasks as requested by the general accountant or other managers.
