While many find mentors in the working environment, Raushan Utegenova, chief accountant at Ahlers Kazakhstan, extended a thank you note to her parents who instilled the basics of hard work and learning in her. 

The path into the industry may have not been the first choice for Utegenova, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Finance from the Faculty of Finance and Credit – at Kyrgyz National University – Bishkek. After being unable to find work in second-tier banks in the 90s, Utegenova turned to companies and from 1999 to 2006, she worked as an accountant.

Since 2007, having studied the field of accounting, Utegenova. took a step towards working independently as a chief accountant, and before joining Ahlers in 2017, she worked for Italian transport and logistics company TUVIA with its head office in Milan.

The daily routine of an accountant in a freight forwarder includes setting up and maintaining accounting records to obtain complete and reliable information about the financial position of the company. It also includes urgent payments, filling out documents, preparing reports, and working with the tax service.

Seeing the change

“A lot has changed. First, the Internet appeared. Next – electronic reporting, and electronic payments, whereas previously it was necessary to print all documents and stay in queues,” Utegenova said of the change she witnessed over the period she has been active in the industry.

Being active in Kazakhstan for Ahlers, she hopes that Kazakhstan will soon switch to electronic document management, and simplify its taxation system.

However, one this is certain in this job, and that is, “people in this profession are irreplaceable in the modern world,” according to Utegenova. “They are needed everywhere, at any enterprise, and in any organisation,” she said, adding that development programs, training courses and vocational training systems are key to bringing young minds into the fray.
