Finance, Tax & Insurance
The finance division at K+S is divided into five units which are described briefly below.
One of the things I like about my work day is that it can only be planned to a limited extent, because the structure is very flexible, depending on the tasks to be completed.
Controlling is responsible for the planning, management and monitoring of corporate goals. It also functions as an in-house adviser for the management team. The controlling unit prepares earnings estimates and economic appraisals/calculations, analyzes deviations from planning and bears responsibility for the company’s long-term financial planning. Controllers operate in many different areas, such as Human Resources, Procurement and Logistics.
The employees of the accounting department draw up regulations and develop processes for accounting, and analyze the balance-sheet treatment of complex business transactions. Furthermore, periodic financial reports are prepared, which are made accessible to internal and external addressees. Accounting at K+S also provides support for projects and, for examples, is involved in such specific matters as credit management and receivables management. In addition to this, the employees are responsible for the performance of general bookkeeping tasks in the following areas: debtors, creditors, asset bookkeeping, and financial accounting.
The treasury department is charged with securing the company’s liquidity at all times by ensuring the available funds are optimally available and by procuring necessary external funds on the capital markets. Other key responsibilities of the treasury department are to monitor and hedge against currency and credit risks.
