I guess basically, yu need to keep track of fin. information in a spreadsheet or financial software program on an ongoing basis. When it's time for a client to publish its annual report, the bookkeeper is responsible for creating and submitting financial statements for the business. This includes an income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement. You must maintain a record of all of the company's financial statements for each quarter and year. You must balance the company's books to ensure they match up with the company's bank accounts. You must regularly check the account to ensure that it's in positive territory and to watch for any strange activity. So, your duties include: Producing invoices; Recording sales receipts and deposit incoming cash and checks; Writing and recording checks to vendors and lenders; Recording wire, ACH and credit card payments; Reconciling bank accounts; Properly transferring money between accounts internally; Filing paper records to validate electronic data; Monitoring budget comparing to actual income and expenses; Financially keeps record of organization's assets and their accounting value. I guess you may ocntact another BK in your local area for more info in detail.
