Steps in dismissing the chief accountant

  1. Acceptance of the application for dismissal and execution of the order.
  • The first step is to accept a written application for dismissal from the chief accountant. It must clearly indicate the date from which the employee wants to resign. Next, the head of the enterprise issues a dismissal order, which also specifies the date of dismissal and the reason for it.
  1. Transfer of cases. One of the most important stages is the transfer of cases to a new accountant. To do this, it is recommended to draw up an act of acceptance and transfer, which will record:
  • List of documents to be transferred;
  • State of affairs at the time of transfer;
  • Debts and other obligations of the enterprise;
  • Other important points.

Consult an accountant

Important: the act of acceptance and transfer must be signed by both parties: the departing chief accountant and the new chief accountant.

  1. Carrying out inventory.
  • In order to make sure of the correctness of accounting and the absence of embezzlement, it is recommended to conduct an inventory of the company's property and liabilities. This can be done both by the own accounting department and with the involvement of third-party auditors. For example, you can reliably do this with the help of the outsourcing company "Prykhodko and Partners".
  1. Search for a new chief accountant. This is a responsible task, because the financial well-being of your company depends on the qualifications and experience of this person. When choosing a candidate, it is recommended to pay attention to:
  • Work experience in similar positions;
  • Knowledge of accounting legislation;
  • Recommendations from previous places of work;
  • Personal qualities (responsibility, honesty, accuracy).
  1. Notification of state authorities. The supervisory authorities must be notified of the dismissal of the chief accountant and the appointment of a new one, in particular:
  • State Tax Service;
  • Pension Fund of Ukraine;
  • Social insurance fund.
  1. Updating information in personnel documents.

After the dismissal of the chief accountant, it is necessary to make appropriate changes to the company's personnel documents, in particular to the staff list.
