Job Description for Fixed Asset Accountant

Fixed asset accountants generally work closely with other accounting staff to create reports and fixed asset depreciation schedules for their organization. They also occasionally work with external auditors to verify the accuracy of work. Fixed asset accountants may also need to interact with other departments on special projects, such as information technology (IT).
