Our client, one of Toronto’s largest property management firms, is looking to hire a Senior Accountant for a 6 month contract position, with the possibility of going permanent.
The Senior Accountant will manage the corporate consolidated financial statements report by preparing inter-company details for consolidation and by eliminating the purpose, preparation and posting of journal entries. The Senior Accountant will also manage the general ledger, journal entries and inter-company balance reconciliations. The Senior Accountant will also perform month and year end settlements, as well as perform monthly SG&A expense trend analysis and prepare reports explaining significant variances for upper management. This role also requires the preparation of monthly accruals and adjusting entries that require monthly general ledger analyses and balance sheet accounts reconciliations.
The Senior Accountant will be working closely with the Account Manager, and will be responsible for managing the Fixed Assets and Depreciation sub-ledgers in SAP within the prescribed closing deadlines. This will require monthly amortization, impairment expenses and perform monthly consolidated fixed assets with intangible asset roll-forwards. It will also require the creation of new capital assets as requested and ensure asset additions and disposals are recorded properly. Other responsibilities include providing fixed assets information to tax groups for tax provision calculation and tax audits.
This is a complex position that requires excellent time management on behalf of the candidate. The right candidate will hold an accounting designation or be close to completion. Excellent Microsoft Office Excel abilities are a must, as well as a solid understanding of Yardi. Since this position is with a property management firm, a background in property or construction is preferred, but not necessary.
