  • Support staff in their communications with suppliers regarding payments.
  • Provide ad-hoc training in the purchase ordering system (Proactis).
  • Prepare, record and send out all GPI BV invoices on a monthly basis, in order to achieve correct and timely registration – and allocate incoming payments in a timely and accurate way.
  • Ensure payment runs are posted to the general ledger and bank accounts are reconciled.
  • Ensure petty cash is secure and regularly reconciled, advising the Finance Manager of cash levels.
  • Process foreign currency transfers and orders.
  • Ensure necessary journals, e.g. accruals and prepayments, are posted for each month-end close and the general ledger and payments system is complete and accurate (review of accounts payable dashboard).
  • Support the Finance Manager on the timely and accurate delivery of the year-end and interim audits.
  • Work directly with external auditors to provide schedules and to enable testing of transactions and the payment process.
