    I worked as an accounting clerk for a couple of years. The great thing about it was that I pretended to be as stupid as everyone else doing it. Which meant I only worked maybe 1/4-1/2 of my time working. The rest was spent reading essays/reading online magazines/posting at INTPcentral. Here the qualifications for being an accounting clerk (or technician as it is called) give you exemptions from the professional qualifications, so you pretty much start at the same level as graudates (of other subjects) going into the profession.

    Then, when the company went under, I was stupid enough to get a job in IT. Cue 60 hour weeks and actually having to think about my work.

    The sort of things you are describing sound a lot like the AAT here, at least the Level 4 version. Real professional accounting involves much more than manipulating software like a clerk; it involves having a thorough knowledge of the regulatory and legal system surrounding both public accounts and taxation.
