Abstract
This study characterises accounting occupational risk by examining its sources. It describes the effects and seeks opportunities to minimise them.

Risk is an integral part of the accounting profession. It has been quite ex-haustively discussed in literature, but in terms of accounting it has not been studied enough it has not been given enough attention, which makes the topic relevant and significant.

Emphasis is placed on the fact that the activities of an accountant must be in accordance with legislation, while accounting for the specificities of the entity. Whence it follows that they are not only responsible for keeping accounts in accordance with regulatory requirements, but also for the decisions made and the accompanying risk.
