L2&3 revision for first Accounts Assistant role

Makkusu Registered Posts: 94 ? ? ?
I'll be starting my my first job in accountancy soon as an Accounts Assistant for a local firm. Has anyone got any advice on certain areas I could do with refreshing ready for my first week?

I'm currently studying Level 4 and I have a few hazy patches from Level 2 & 3 due to studying them around a year ago. I'm worried I'll have forgotten some of the basics!

Some requirements I've picked up so far is VAT returns, reconciling bank accounts/sales ledgers, SAGE, and making adjustments(?).

Any help at all is appreciated, even if it's an obvious area.

    First of all.. Congratulations!!!

    I think if you just read through some of your old books, it should all come flooding back to you :) Accruals is a good thing to know a lot about, can't really think of much else.

    Good Luck, let me know how your first day goes!
