Job Description for Senior Staff Accountant

Senior staff accountants are responsible for overseeing all aspects of a company’s accounting. Some specialization may occur in larger organizations, but senior staff accountants generally verify payroll information, review billing details on a monthly basis, prepare and post journal entries, and maintain the balance sheet. In the short term, they track cash and credit payments and rectify banking information on a daily basis. In some firms, senior staff accountants may also track sales tax or other specialized tax information. Longer-term projects include analyzing yearly performance data for presentation to management, which involves comparing prior projections to actual performance, adjusting and creating a new forecast, and investigating any anomalies in the accounting data. Senior staff accountants also assist with auditing as needed.
