Accounting


Overview

Accounting is a very dynamic and prosperous sector. Every year there is an increase of a few per cent in the number of accountant companies being opened.

Because of the increasing competition in the market, more and more accountants are offering not only traditional services such as bookkeeping or preparing accounts and tax returns but are also providing more specialised services. They assist in HR activities (eg. proposing staff renumeration for their work) and compiling documents in order to apply for loans and other types of funding.
