a traditional bookkeeping ledger Bookkeeping and accounting clerks keep records and current accounts of financial transactions for business, government, and other organizations.  They record daily transactions on computer database spreadsheets and may sort and record bills, sales slips, check stubs, and inventory and requisition lists. They also record figures for accounts payable and receivable, and profits and losses, often with computer databases and spreadsheets.

Bookkeeping and accounting clerks work in small companies, retail and wholesale businesses, hospitals, schools, and other agencies.  General bookkeepers are often employed by small businesses or supervised by accountants in larger companies.  Audit clerks are responsible for verifying company figures.  Billing and rate clerks post items in accounts payable or receivable ledgers and create bills and invoices.  Account information clerks compile payroll and employee profit shares, prepare reports, and write company checks.

Educational requirements for bookkeepers and accounting clerks include a minimum of a high school diploma with many businesses preferring additional junior college or business training.  Candidates should ideally have a background in business mathematics, business writing, typing, and computer applications.  Employment growth for bookkeeping accountants and clerks is expected to remain steady for the next several years.  More information about education and career opportunities for bookkeeping and accounting clerks can be found at the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business websites.
