Location: Wilmington
Posted on: November 9, 2019

Job Description:

Cover & Rossiter, an award-winning, full-service CPA accounting and advisory firm located in Wilmington, Delaware, is seeking an experienced Accountant/Bookkeeper to work in its Accounting Services department. The Accounting Services department provides outsource services designed to streamline an organization's accounting processes, while improving internal controls, to provide greater asset protection. Accounting Services clients include nonprofit organizations, dental practices, investment management firms, law firms, manufacturers, retail shops, and medical practices, to name a few.
Cover & Rossiter is a great place to work with many unique benefits. In July 2018, we moved into a beautiful, new state-of-the-art office space at Little Falls Centre One. The configuration of the office space and innovative workstations, which include sit-to-stand desks, are intended to facilitate collaboration and improve productivity.
We want our accountants to not only be technically proficient but to also play a role in the firm's future growth. We regularly invest in firm-wide professional development initiatives that go beyond accounting and focus on professionalism, accountability and client service.
Our firm has been recognized in our community and industry for the work we are doing. In 2018, we were awarded the Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Award presented by the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce. In 2019, we were one of five accounting firms in the nation to be selected by the AICPA to participate in the George Willie Ethnically Diverse Student Scholarship and Internship program.

While each client is different, specific responsibilities include but are not limited to:

Accounting services needed to maintain books and records and control over the company's assets. This includes, but is not limited to: trial balance and general ledger reporting, A/P, A/R, bank reconciliation, inventory control, invoicing, billing, payroll processing, and credit card payments
Software setup and training on such systems as QuickBooks, Sage 50 and Bill.com
Perform monthly reconciliations in a timely manner
Ensure accurate recordkeeping in accounting software, e.g. QuickBooks, using the proper general ledger information
Processing of payroll and all related payroll tax filings and reports
Preparation of monthly, quarterly and year-end financial reports
Coordinate with external auditors

Accountants working in Accounting Services are self-starters, who work independently. They effectively and efficiently manage their work load in order to complete assigned tasks on a timely basis and within project scope and budget. They have a depth of technical knowledge within their discipline and stay current on tax code changes and the resulting impact on their clients. Additionally, the BAS accountant will assist in developing the department's objectives to target and identify opportunities for growth.


Associate's or Bachelor's degree with an emphasis in Accounting/Business
4 - 5 years related work experience
Strong verbal and written communication skills
