  • Cash Book Management ensuring all authorisation protocols are met before payments are raised. Weekly bank account reconciliations and monthly petty cash reconciliations.

  • Monthly & Year End Fixed Asset reconciliations and monthly depreciation journal
  • Preparation and submission of Statutory accounts, in liaison with external auditors, accountants and finance leads from major investor.
