Job Description for Financial Accountant

Financial accountability is pivotal to maintaining a healthy business, and financial accountants conduct a number of functions to ensure this is possible. They manage payroll, taxes, income, spending, and educating their employer on financial information. Work days for financial accountants can be a bit longer than a standard 9-to-5 job, because of strict deadlines on all projects that financial accountants are given.
