Didn't find your answer?

Hello, I was just wondering if there is any possibility to ask for some help with Accountancy- practice tasks as I am starting a new job and would like to build up my knowledge?

Many thanks for your time,

Usually when you start a new job, your employer provides training. Why is your employer not providing training?

Anyway, that aside, what rate per hour are you willing to pay? I might be able to do something for, say, £50 ph.

Many thanks for your reply, I am looking to understand better the following tasks:
Preparing quarterly VAT returns for multiple clients using various VAT
schemes including Flat Rate Scheme.
Preparing monthly CIS returns for multiple clients.
Verifying subcontractors
Be familiar with intercompany accounts.
All aspects of bookkeeping for clients including bank reconciliations,
debtor and creditor reconciliations and any journals necessary to
trial balance stage for limited companies, partnerships and sole traders.
Processing monthly payroll for multiple clients.
They will give me a training but not long enough and also I would like to make sure that I remember all the above.
I would be very keen to pay £40 per hour.
Please let me know if this is ok.
Many thanks,
Izabela

Nobody can teach you this by the hour. This is all learned by experience working on real clients.

Have you taken a job where you are exaggerated your level of experience?

Something doesn't quite add up here.

You have taken a job but it seems you are not equipped to do any of it. What kind of employer, apart from thinking you are the ideal candidate, tells a new starter that they are not prepared to show you how to do the job so that you have to pay privately for help?

Many thanks for getting back to me,
I didn't take the job yet - still have time to decide until Friday - but I was thinking it could be a great opportunity for me to go back (5 years ago worked as an accounts assistant). I have told them my situation and they are thinking that I do not need much training... I remember some things but maybe should not take the job,
Many thanks for your time

Have a look at someone like SWAT UK - they do training courses that you might be able to self study but really I would discuss this with the potential employer

I feel like this employment is going to give you a lot of grief if they aren't going to give you training you need to actually be able to do the job.

When you applied for the job did you not tell them you are still training?

When I first started my training in an accounting practice they only set me small some trader accounts to do, and it was one section at a time. Ie do bank reconciliation, then move on to the next section. As they knew I was only training and everything then went to my line manager for review I did not deal with any clients directly
