Job Description for Fixed Asset Accountant

Fixed asset accountants are specialists that keep track of their organization's fixed assets. They are responsible for tracking these assets from the time they are purchased by the company to the time that they are disposed of or sold, so they are appropriately accounted for on local, state, and federal taxes. 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). They also may be responsible for updating relevant databases with information on fixed assets.
