They help companies compare their asset expenditures with their capital budgets.

Accountants may also obtain certification as Certified Public Accountants or Certified Management Accountants. Additionally, some Fixed Asset Accountants start off by obtaining internships at corporations as Junior Accountants and then work their way up through the company. There are also positions for people with Strong Fixed Asset Experience.
