Technical Accounting Questions


Hi guys

Thought it’d be worthwhile to list the technical accounting questions you’ve been asked in the past. For me they’ve been

  1. Please describe the double entry process for an employee wage accrual.
  2. How would you use the double entry process to account for stationery expense?
  3. Describe the relationship between the general ledger and the subsidiary ledger.

I have never been asked something like that in 1st or 2nd interviews


What company asked you these questions?

Various companies. I’ve encountered heaps of these for graduate interviews.

I’m incredulous at the fact technical questions aren’t asked more often!
