An accountant is a professional that handles all the financial and money related transactions in an organization. The key responsibility of an accountant is to monitor and supervise cash inflow and outflow in a company. Even when a company is accommodating an accountant very good, there are many chances that it can’t force the employees to stick with the company for any longer which means the accountant in a company has to resign from his job and pursue a better job in a better organization. In order to leave his job, he is required to inform the employer and management of the organization about his decision and let them know that he is going to leave the company on the mentioned date. This is done with the accountant resignation letter.

Many things are important to include in the resignation letter along with some factors that the accountant has to take care before leaving the company. For example, in the resignation letter, the accountant has to mention a specific date on which he will leave the company along with providing a particular period of time known as notice period in which the employer can find a substitute for his position.

Before leaving the company, the accountant is also required to get a NOC letter from the head of accounts department mentioning that the accountant has filled all the documents and assisted the other employees to match or compare the books to make sure there is no error and mistake in the accounts. The accountant is also required to mention in the resignation letter if he has already found another job or he will continue searching for one after leaving the company. This way the employer can easily evaluate if it’s possible to extend the notice period if it’s necessary for the company.
