The role as an Accountant in Laois






An accountant is a person who performs functions like recording, classifying, and summarising financial data. Accountants can work in both the public and private sector and can be anything from a simple bookkeeper to a strategic adviser and interpreting information on finance for senior decision-makers in an organisation.


There are different types of accountants, and some of them include:

  • Cost accountants
  • Financial accountants
  • Forensic accountants
  • Internal auditors
  • Management accountants
  • Project accountants
  • Public accountants
  • Tax accountants


What does it take to be a good accountant?

Strong sense of work ethics: A good accountant must be able to distinguish what’s right from what’s wrong, and display integrity in his or her accounting profession.

Attention to details: Accountancy is a sensitive profession that requires a high degree of accuracy, making it imperative for a good accountant to pay close attention to details.

Knowledge of the field: As stated above, there are different subfields of accountancy, and it’s important to have a rich knowledge of a particular industry as well as the niche of a client’s business.

Constant learning: The rules of accountancy and the laws are ever-changing. A good accountant must display interest in keeping up-to-date with the trends in the industry.
