Things You Should (Definitely) Know About Before Applying to Accountant Jobs in Delhi

We’ll be providing answers to the common questions that job seekers ask about accountant jobs in Delhi. Let’s get started.

Question 1: What exactly does an accountant do?

Business and finance — these are the two fields in which an accountant has an important role to play. To be fair, you can say that they’re specialists in these areas. 

They have to shoulder many responsibilities which will depend on their designation and the employer they work for. But perhaps, the major role of accountants in Delhi is to deep dive into the profit and loss statements of a company. Some of the other duties include:

  • Ensuring that clients follow tax regulations, rules and laws
  • Analyse and create the company’s financial records
  • Financial reporting of companies and individuals
  • Deal with the preparation of taxes

Question 2: How does one become an accountant?

Accountants are masters in their line of work. And as mentioned earlier, you need to be a specialist which can only happen if you possess a degree of specialisation in finance, accounting or a similar field. And that’s not all. Apart from the certifications, an accountant must be self-motivated and driven to quickly pick up the essentials of business finance along the way and apply them flawlessly to achieve desirable results. 

One of the misconceptions of accounting as a profession is that the person will have to stick to one role — and carry out the associated responsibilities — until told otherwise by the employer. However, that is simply not the case. 

Nowadays, companies that hire accountants in Delhi expect a lot more. They require multitaskers, capable of wearing many different hats in the world of finance. Simply put, they are always on the lookout for true accounting and finance professionals who not only possess the ability to become certified public accountants, but can also flawlessly answer a myriad of questions directed at them by clients and stakeholders.

Question 3: For an accountant job, what would be the minimum educational qualifications required?

Employers in Delhi are willing to offer jobs to only those accountants who hold some form of certification, graduation degree, postgraduate qualification. So, it’s fair to say that educational qualification to be eligible for accounting jobs is quite stringent. 

Only those who fulfil the criteria can, in fact, sign up for accountant jobs in Delhi. Let’s take a look at some certifications/courses available in India that can qualify you for accountant jobs.

  • Business and Management
  • Chartered Institute of Management Accountants(CIMA)
  • Budgetary Control
  • Bookkeeping
  • Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)
  • Financial Risk Manager(FRM)
  • B.Com.
  • M.Com.

So, there you have it — those were some of the courses that can get you one step closer to an accountant job in Delhi. 

Do keep in mind that all candidates may not get the same jobs (and responsibilities) upon completion of any of the aforementioned courses. For instance, a B.Com graduate who possesses a few years of work experience may have a completely different designation and job responsibilities as compared to an entry-level B.Com graduate.

Question 4: What are the different job roles/designations under accounting jobs?

Given below are some of the job roles that are available under accounting jobs in Delhi. 

  • Deputy Manager Accounts
  • Retail Accountant
  • Project Accountant
  • Senior Manager Accounts
  • Country Accountant
  • Accountant
  • Business Analyst
  • Staff Accountant
  • Certified Public Accountant(CPA)
  • Accounting Officer
  • Assistant Manager Accounts
  • Accounting Manager
  • Accounting Supervisor
  • General Accountant
  • Cost Accountant

Question 5: What are the associated job responsibilities of an accountant in Delhi?

Here are some of the job responsibilities of accountants in Delhi.

  • See to it that accounting rules and regulations are followed by the company
  • Draw up disbursement records
  • Record transactions and settle accounts
  • Dispatch financial bills to the accounts department located at company headquarters
  • Map out agendas, settlements, and accurate paperwork for financial auditing
  • Stay up-to-date about national and local taxation laws and norms
  • Synchronize with external clients and stakeholders
  • Budget preparation

While what we listed above are standard duties of an accountant, you should know that they are also required to shoulder other responsibilities which may vary depending on the employer and the domain they specialize in.

However, the elementary responsibility of an accountant irrespective of the employer or the domain they specialize in — such as government agency, corporation, or individual — is to file legal financial documents. An example of such a document would be financial information of public enterprises which must be put out in the open for potential investors. 

In the case of individual clients, an accountant’s job responsibilities may include, filling out tax forms, filing tax returns and so on.

As for accountants in Delhi who work for corporations and businesses, they must provide budget recommendations and ensure that internal financial information/data are thoroughly analyzed, and that the company is operating — and is in compliance — with all the rules and regulations laid out by the government.

Question 6: What are the must-have skills for accountant jobs in Delhi?

Accountant professionals must be familiar with any of the following. In fact, chances of employment significantly improve if you have proven work experience and complete knowhow about the “skills” below. Again, although these are must-have skills, requirements differ from company to company.
