Accountant ID Cards/Badges

An accountant holds an important position in an organization as he is in charge of recording, tracking and monitoring the financial details, which can directly affect the financial outlook and influence the decisions of the organization’s stakeholders. Therefore, considering the significance of the accountant’s job nature, the implication of his identification can easily be understood.

For individually identifying and distinguishing an accountant from the other employees or even the other accountants, accountant ID badges are issued by the organizations.

These ID badges are expected to be visibly worn by the accountants throughout their working hours so that, everyone can easily identify them. In addition to this purpose of identification, an ID badge can have numerous associated benefits, such as:

  • Through the ID badges, security can be easily maintained at the entrance of the organization or the accounting department as well as for the system, accounting software and accounting records.
  • The accountant can record his attendance, working hours or do other tasks by swiping his ID badge.
  • The access to the accounting and financial details can be controlled through technologies, such as scan codes or magnetic chips, on the ID badges. The system and the software may be both password and scan code protected, depending on the organization’s desires.  
  • The ID badges provide authority as well as bestow responsibility. If any accounting issue would arise, the accountant would be held responsible and accountable.
  • With this badge, the other employees would know who the accountant is. For instance, if there has been a delay in the salary transfer, the HR manager would directly approach the accountant, without wasting time with irrelevant employees.
  • The ID badge may be used as an employee card to utilise any fringe benefits given to the accountant by the company.

As the current ID badges contain far more information than a simple photo and name, like in the traditional badges, the incorporated technologies can store secure information as well. Different organizations have different details on their badges, both text or image and the coded information. However, the general details are, usually, the same. These include:

  • Photo
  • Name
  • Gender
  • Signature
  • Job title, e.g. accountant, assistant accountant, etc
  • Name and logo of the organization
  • Distinct ID badge number
  • Scan code or magnetic strip

The designing of the ID badges also varies from one organization to the other. For instance, some firms simply design a template and modify it for different job titles while the others utilize the available templates from programs, like MS word, and customize it as per their needs, requirements, the scope of operations and required the functionality of the ID badges.

Sometimes, in the case of incorporation of codes and magnetic strips, firms seek expertise of technology firms and outsource the task to them as well. No matter who prepares the ID badge or how it is prepared, what matters is that it should have the required functionality and should serve its purpose.
