Joanna_PS-Poland

What motivated you to apply to Process Solutions?

During the interview I learnt that PS provides services for multinational companies in most countries across Europe. I perceived it as a big chance to improve my English skills, especially my accounting vocabulary. Working in partnership with multinational customers also meant an opportunity to obtain strong experience in a diverse environment. Moreover, the PS office in Warsaw is located in the city center with good access to public transport.

 

What tasks do you have as an Experienced Assistant?

I post bank statements and invoices, calculate CIT, prepare VAT returns and other statutory reports such as reports for the Statistical Office and Intrastat. As an experienced assistant, I provide seniors with draft management reports for them to review and forward to clients via e-mail. Sometimes I teach new assistants or meet clients together with more experienced staff members. The tasks are really diverse.

 

 

 

What do you consider as a challenge?

The biggest challenge for me is tax regulations in Poland, especially those concerning corporate income tax. I have learnt a lot during my work at PS, but some tax issues are still difficult. I also feel quite nervous when meeting clients face to face. Dealing with clients during professional conversations, especially in English, can be challenging.

 

What kind of support and training did you get that helped you to be such a successful employee of PS?

My colleagues are very helpful and I can always count on their assistance. More experienced staff members share information and knowledge when I have a problem with finding effective and logical solutions.

 

PS provides great opportunities to attend training courses. At the beginning of 2014 I took part in a tax course in order to be updated on the changes in VAT regulations. Last year, I started to participate in a six-month tax and accounting course with The Accountants Association in Poland. It was a really memorable experience. PS also organizes in-house training every month concerning our accounting system.

 

What do you consider as a success?

I feel that success is when I manage to accomplish new goals every year and my work allows me to develop. For example, I have managed to prepare financial data for consolidated accounts for a listed company, which would have been impossible for me last year. Success is also when I put a lot of work into something and I see the positive and visible results of my effort. It’s something that I can look back on and say “I achieved that.” The tax and accounting course at The Accountants Association in Poland was quite difficult for me, but after a lot of hard work I managed to achieve the best score in the group.
