Accounts technician as countersignatory

Post by Narcisa » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:22 pm

Hi all. Do you know if it's ok to name as countersignatory an accounts technician? The form says accountant but also "An acceptable countersignatory is a professional person or person of standing in the community ". If not, can the agencies I worked with be named instead? The work I have done has been in the public sector too. Thanks for any piece of advice.

I was always told the counter signatory needs to be a professional that have undergone similar checks that you will go under.. so teachers (I remember my teacher had a massive pile of passport applications to sign every year 😂) lawyers, police officers, doctors that sort of thing as they have a standing in the community.

The only stipulation is that it can't be immediate family, my sister's partner's brother is a police officer so that worked in my favour really.

A certified accountant will have had background checks to handle large volumes of money, an account technician won't have I wouldn't have thought
