Accounts Payable Payroll Clerk Cover Letter Sample

Dear Mr. Sheffield,

This letter is to express my interest in the Payroll Clerk position you recently advertised in the Gazette. I have superior accounting payroll organization and timekeeping abilities. With five years of payroll clerk experience under my belt I am a top candidate for your consideration.

My current position is serving as the payroll clerk for a manufacturing facility with over five hundred employees. I am responsible for collecting all information calculating taxes and benefits amounts and processing checks on a biweekly basis. By using databases I am able to accomplish all of this as well as to submit tax amounts for deposit with the state and federal governments. My excellent interpersonal skills have allowed me to resolve employee payroll discrepancies and correspond with tact and courtesy. I am able to digitally track earned time paid time off retirement contributions and wages for both hourly and salaried employees. Additionally I am able to track which employees have direct deposits and which receive checks and to have both ready in a timely manner.

Dear Ms Graham,

I would like to formally apply for the Accounts Payable Clerk position that you advertised today on the website.

Accounts Payable is all I’ve ever done, and have been doing for the last five years.

I come to you as someone who can identify and resolve invoice queries, allocate bank receipts on a daily basis and make sure there are no gaps in any important administrative records. As a true professional I tailor my approach to accounting tasks on a case by case basis, and am someone who will always play an integral part in any department I work for. Furthermore, as a sociable person I have a recognised ability to build excellent working relationships with both colleagues, clients and non-financial people.

With my present employer I am responsible for keeping the administrative records accurate and up to date so that the Company managers will always have the latest information at their fingertips. On a typical day I will Code and post invoices, support the needs of a team of 10 people, negotiate payment terms with suppliers and help to decide company purchasing policies.

I believe that my career to date has made me a much better person, and I am now keen to continue my successful career by joining a friendly, modern and professional accounting practice like yours.

I invite you to review my attached resume which will show you that I am a capable and professional individual who is able to perform to the highest standards in all of the areas you are looking for in a candidate.

I can be contacted by mobile or email and very much look forward to hearing from you as regards an interview.

Yours sincerely,
