As an accountant, you document all financial data and assets, advise the management and prepare profit and loss accounts and balance sheets. In contrast to the work in tax consultancy, an accountant is not allowed to prepare annual financial statements, but only to prepare them. Otherwise, you are responsible for the smooth running of payment transactions in the company, for example, you write invoices and check incoming payments.

Tougher competition between companies is increasing the pressure on costs - so it is all the more important to recognise where money is being earned or burnt. As a business controller, you try to find out how the company's performance can be improved. Therefore, your tasks include the evaluation of data, the comparison of planned and actual figures and the preparation of budgets and forecasts, i.e. the "look into the future". You work closely with other departments and the management and advise on how to achieve the company's goals.
