What does a bookkeeper do?
Bookkeeping can be a long and fulfilling career. Bookkeepers are tasked with keeping high-quality, accurate accounting records. Tasks undertaken by bookkeepers can include inputting sales and purchases ledgers into accounting software as well as expense receipts and sales income. They will be in charge of reconciling income and expenses as well as the sales and purchase ledger. A bookkeeper will also categorise costs, input capital expenditure and look after prepayments and accruals. They will normally make provisions for corporate tax and oversee depreciation journals. They may also need to raise invoices, chase payments, pay in cheques and other administrative tasks.
