Accountant - Revenue & Sales



Accounting & Finance, Sales & Business Development
Sydney, NSW, Australia · Australia
Posted on Thursday, August 24, 2023

Have you ever walked into a place and felt right at home? People are chatting, laughing and exchanging ideas; they’re deeply invested. No one’s afraid to speak up, experiment or fail. And everyone cares – about the work, each other, the planet and what's for lunch.

It’s a place where you’re celebrated for the value you add, not the title you come with, and supported to do what makes you happy.

As the Revenue & Sales Accountant, you’ll be at the heart of keeping this awesome operation ticking over with amazing accuracy and efficiency, across four countries and our team of 300 world-class humans. Reporting to our Revenue & Sales Accounting Manager and part of the wider Phocas Finance team, you will take responsibility for the accounting for contracts, billing and revenue management including invoicing and revenue assurance, and contribute to process and systems improvements.

Here’s how you’ll do that:

  • Timely and accurate revenue invoicing
  • Ensuring that the contracts are maintained and documented accurately, and working in partnership with business to ensure customer contracts are recognised appropriately
  • Ensuring the revenue and costs of goods sold recognition complies with the accounting policies
  • Undertaking sales tax compliance activities, and assist with sales tax reporting as required
  • Maintaining the billing system, accounts receivables records and sales ledger

This is what you’ll need to do it:

  • Minimum 3 years’ experience in similar role, in revenue and sales accounting
  • Proven knowledge and application of accounting principles and practices
  • Prior experience in ERP software (Sage Intacct is ideal)
  • Advanced Excel skills
  • CPA/CA (completed or currently working towards) and a Bachelor of Accounting, Business or Commerce degree

A bit about us, in the hope you’ll quit whatever you’re doing and join us.

We’re a business planning and analytics company on a mission to make people feel good about data. Since 2001, we’ve helped thousands of companies turn complex business data into performance boosting results. Despite our now global status of 300 world-class humans, we’ve held on to our start-up roots. The result is a workplace that’s fast, exciting and designed for fun.

We know that fun is different for everyone. So, if you want to experiment with tech, lead a project, champion wellness, or leave early to dabble in your cake making side hustle, you’ll have our full support.

As long as you’re happy, the rest falls into place. Think less stress, higher performance, more energy and all-round nicer human. Your friends and family will be delighted.

Create your happy place.
