What- the Role:

Our client is seeking a new Corporate Accountant to join them for what will initially be a 6-month contract (opportunity for permanent employment in future).  The new Corp Acct will be responsible for full-cycle accounting, including preparing financial statements for the parent company and a couple subsidiaries, financial reporting (IFRS), general ledger reconciliation, AP (small volume under 30 invoices a month, mostly done by wire transfer), AR (again, low volume), cash management and currency exchange calculations (US-to-Cdn $$), forecasting & budgeting, payroll (20 people, automated system, fewer than 6 hours a month), commission accounting, tax filing for limited partnerships, monitoring operating expenses, etc. Additionally, the Accountant will help with ad hoc analysis and accounting tasks and projects, including process improvements.
